Teleology or finality is a reason or explanation for something as a function of its end, purpose, or goal. Its name is derived from two Greek words: logos. A purpose, imposed by a human use, such as that of a fork, is called extrinsic. Natural teleology, common in classical philosophy but controversial today, contends that natural entities have intrinsic purposes, irrespective of human use or opinion. For instance, Aristotle claimed that an acorn's intrinsic telos is to become a grown oak tree. Though ancient atomists rejected the notion of natural teleology, teleological accounts of non-personal or non-human nature were explored and endorsed in ancient and medieval philosophies, but fell into disfavor during the modern era. In the late 18th century, Immanuel Kant used the concept of telos as a regulative principle in his Critique of Judgment. Teleology was fundamental to the philosophy of G. W. F. Hegel. Contemporary philosophers and scientists are still discussing whether teleological axioms are useful or accurate in proposing modern philosophies and scientific theories.

An example of the reintroduction of teleology into modern language is the notion of an attractor. For another instance in 2012, Thomas Nagel, not a biologist, proposed a non-Darwinian account of evolution that incorporates impersonal and natural teleological laws to explain the existence of life, consciousness and objective value. Regardless, the accuracy can be considered independently from the usefulness: it is a common experience in pedagogy that a minimum of apparent teleology can be useful in thinking about and explaining Darwinian evolution if there is no true teleology driving evolution, thus it is easier to say that evolution "gave" wolves sharp canine teeth because those teeth "serve the purpose of" predation regardless of whether there is an underlying nonteleologic reality in which evolution is not an actor with intentions. In other words, because human cognition and learning rely on the narrative structure of stories, some minimal level of teleology might be recognized as useful or at least tolerable for practical purposes by people who reject its cosmologic accuracy.

Its accuracy is upheld by Barrow and Tippler in their 1986 treatise published by Oxford University Press "The Anthropic Cosmological Principle". The citings of teleologists such as Max Plank and Norbert Wiener cannot be ignored in any truthful scientific endeavor; the word teleology builds on the Greek τέλος, telos and -λογία, logia, "speak of, study of, a branch of learning". The German philosopher Christian von Wolff coined the term in 1728 in his work Philosophia rationalis, sive logica. In western philosophy, the term and concept of teleology originated in the writings of Plato and Aristotle. Aristotle's Four Causes give special place to each thing's telos or "final cause." In this, he followed Plato in seeing purpose in both sub-human nature. In the Phaedo, Plato through Socrates argues that true explanations for any given physical phenomenon must be teleological, he bemoans those who fail to distinguish between a thing's necessary and sufficient causes, which he identifies as material and final causes: Imagine not being able to distinguish the real cause, from that without which the cause would not be able to act, as a cause.

It is. That is why one man surrounds the earth with a vortex to make the heavens keep it in place, another makes the air support it like a wide lid; as for their capacity of being in the best place they could be at this time, this they do not look for, nor do they believe it to have any divine force, but they believe that they will some time discover a stronger and more immortal Atlas to hold everything together more, they do not believe that the good and'binding' binds and holds them together. Plato here argues that while the materials that compose a body are necessary conditions for its moving or acting in a certain way, they cannot be the sufficient condition for its moving or acting as it does. For example, if Socrates is sitting in an Athenian prison, the elasticity of his tendons is what allows him to be sitting, so a physical description of his tendons can be listed as necessary conditions or auxiliary causes of his act of sitting. However, these are only necessary conditions of Socrates' sitting.

To give a physical description of Socrates' body is to say that Socrates is sitting, but it does not give us any idea why it came to be that he was sitting in the first place. To say why he was sitting and not not sitting, we have to explain what it is about his sitting, good, for all things brought about are brought about because the actor saw some good in them. Thus, to give an explanation of something is to determine what about it is good, its goodness is its actual cause—its purpose, telos or "reason for which". Aristotle argued that Democritus was wrong to attempt to reduce all things to mere necessity, because doing so neglects the aim, "final cause", which brings about these necessary conditions: Democritus, neglecting the final cause, reduces to necessity all the operations of nature. Now, they are necessary, it is true, but yet they are for a final cause and for the sake of what is best in each case, thus nothing prevents the teeth from being shed in this way.

There are 66 such churches in Rome, more than any other city, more than 125 of the 131 countries in the world that have basilicas.

Oriental Brewery

Oriental Brewery or OB is a South Korean brewery owned by AB InBev, founded by Doosan Group. Established by the Doosan Group in 1952, it was purchased by InBev in 1998. In July 2009, it was sold by Anheuser-Busch InBev, it was sold to an affiliate of Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co.. Anheuser-Busch InBev has retained the right to purchase OB five years from its sale, at predetermined financial terms. In April 2014, AB Inbev executed its right to repurchase OB. OB became a subsidiary of AB Inbev again. Today OB produces several of Korea's most popular beverages including the OB, Cass and Cafri lager brands. All OB beers are brewed from rice, rather than the malted barley familiar to Western beer drinkers. In March 2001, the company merged Cass Beer with the production capacity of 1,120,000 KLE per year, produced red rock, OBE, KaprI, etc. In July 2002, it was the first beer industry to obtain the ISO 9001 certification from the Korea Standards Association, it became a foreign company when it was taken over by Dutch beer company Molte Industries in September 2010 and became a subsidiary of Belgian beer company Anheuser-Bush Inversh in April 2014.

Oriental Brewery bought the Cass brand from Jinro-Coors in 1999 and built it up again, with OB declaring a 51% market share in 2000. In 2007, the higher alcohol Cass Red was introduced. In 2011 Cass Lager became South Korea's number one selling brand; the beer became notable after an endorsement by British celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay who described it as "not pretentious", "easy" and "fresh".

His appearance in several of the beer's adverts caused much derision from viewers who found Ramsay's preference for the beer —, considered to be poor in quality — offending despite his status as a chef scrutinizing of his food palate. Non-alcoholic look-alikes of Cass can be found with brand names such as "Cars" and "Cdss"; some norae-bang establishments have been known to try to pass off these imitations as the real thing, as Korean law prohibits noraebangs marked as such from selling alcoholic drinks within its premises.
