According to the National Institute on Deafness and Other
Communication Disorders, “A cochlear implant is a small, complex
electronic device that can help to provide a sense of sound to a
person who is profoundly deaf or severely hard-of-hearing. The
implant consists of an external portion that sits behind the ear and
a second portion that is surgically placed under the skin (see
figure). An implant has the following parts:
• A microphone, which picks up sound from the environment.
• A speech processor, which selects and arranges sounds picked up by
• A transmitter and receiver/stimulator, which receive signals from
the speech processor and convert them into electric impulses.
• An electrode array, which is a group of electrodes that collects
the impulses from the stimulator and sends them to different regions
of the auditory nerve.
An implant does not restore normal hearing. Instead, it can give a
deaf person a useful representation of sounds in the environment and
help him or her to understand speech.” To read more: see

nation-state to acquire more colonies, thus adding to the great
power of the country. The perspective was that colonies were a

The basis of opponents, oppressed and the oppressor, good and evil,
and simply the war of classes, was an already existing societal
issue ever since the Middle Ages. The emerging middle class and the
bourgeoisie laid the foundations of control over the feudal classes,
thus the powerful maintained the dominant views in business and
government. Marxism simply capitalized on the fact that a revolution
could quite possibly restructure society, taking the dialectic that
everything evolves scientifically, thus every change throughout
history is the result of conflicts between material forces.
