In The Great Gatsby, set in two wealthy communities, East Egg and West Egg, Fitzgerald describes Gatsby as a Romantic, larger- than-life, figure by setting him apart from the common person.

Due to the reciprocity of the arguments, it is

Every scientific advance somehow “exemplifies the defective state of the art of reasoning of the time it was written.” (pg.62) Thus, we are not perfectly logical creatures, in fact, most of us are content with our beliefs without logical facts; and since we gain logical facts through experience, experience only serves to continuously frust
