Hume spent well over five pages dissecting these three types; but Madison, while determined to be inclusive, had not the space to go into such minute analysis. Besides, he was more intent now on developing the cure than on describing the malady. He therefore consolidated Hume's two-page treatment of "personal" factions and his long discussion of parties based on "principle and affection" into a single sentence. The tenth Federalist reads" "A zeal for different opinions concerning religion, concerning government, and many other points, as well of speculation as of practice; an attachment to different leaders ambitiously contending for pre-eminence and power; or to persons of other descriptions whose fortunes have been interesting to the human passions, have, in turn, divided mankind into parties, inflamed them with mutual animosity, and rendered them much more disposed to vex ad oppress each other than to co-operate for their common good." It is hard to conceive of a more perfect example of the concentration of idea and meaning than Madison achieved in this famous sentence.
Merit-based scholarships are awarded only during the fall semester and cover in-state costs only. Some of these awards are four-year scholarships, renewable for up to three consecutive years provided the appropriate GPA is maintained. Students who apply by the scholarship application deadline will be notified by the beginning of April if they are to receive a scholarship offer. Each fall, all outstanding freshman applicants as well as a limited number of Virginia community college transfer student applicants who have earned a minimum of 45 semester credit hours are considered for scholarship awards.
'I loved reading this year's winners and runners-up. It filled me with hope, to read them. The senior winner, Annika Turon-Semmens, already has the refusal to compromise that marks a real writer. Human Nature is an astute fusion of funny, vivid, apprehending, powerful, sympathetic and visionary. The senior runner-up, Hiya Chowdhury, has pulled off something very difficult indeed, a story that shines with subtlety and rightness, skilful articulacy, with a communal understanding in which contemporaneity and history, both essentially held together, are made visible in the briefest space like a flare in the dark. The story has a perfected choreography wise beyond its years and its size.
