Research Paper. Introduction that I submitted so please write the paper about this specific topic. I chose Candide because the story shows levels of the sharpest criticism against nobility, philosophy, the church, and cruelty. An example of philosophy in Candide is “You are perfectly right, said Pangloss; for when man was put into the garden of Eden, he was put there ut operaretur eum, so that he should work it; this proves that man was not born to take his ease”. Pangloss highlights that this remedy resembles the state of humanity in the Garden of Eden, where humans were the masters of everything. The characters in Turkey have control over their fates on their small piece of land. They are no longer at the mercy of circumstances and are literally reaping what they sow. The surprising happy ending presents a fictional argument against optimism, making the reader question whether Pangloss is correct in claiming to live in “the best of possible worlds”. Another example is “Optimism,” said Cacambo, “what is that?” “Alas!” replied Candide, “it is the obstinacy of maintaining that everything is best when it is worst.”. Upon reaching Surinam, Candide and Cacambo encounter a slave from the sugar factory who has lost a hand and a leg. Upon witnessing the slave’s plight, Candide openly renounces Pangloss’s philosophy of optimism and feels profound pity for the victim. Candide enters Surinam with tears in his eyes, and this moment of compassion highlights the themes of hypocrisy and absurdity. minimum of 6 pages, 5 research sources – minimum of 3 quotes from each research source.
