Then write a paper that is at least 2 full pages long, double-spaced, regular margins and 12 pt font to address the following prompt: How does the meteorological concept of the ”Butterfly Effect” extend outside the boundaries of meteorology and how can one apply this concept and the broader idea it represents to empower society in general and the individual in particular?
Jan Christiaan Sepp (1739-1811) was part of a dynasty of collectors, publishers & print dealers founded by his father Christian Sepp (c. 1700-1775), in Goslar, Germany. Christian established himself in Amsterdam after the birth of his eldest son as an engraver of maps. He was an avid collector of butterflies & insects, which proved a valuable resource for his many natural history publications. Christian’s son, Jan Christiaan Sepp joined his father's business and succeeded him on his death. The Sepp publishing house produced some of the finest Dutch natural history colour-plate books of the 18th &19th centuries. Three more generations of Sepps continued the business until 1868 and the publication of beautiful works on butterflies & moths continued well into the 1900s.
That whole complex interaction -- not unlike the dilemmas we face with those we love (how do we balance truthfulness and tact?) -- is partly the reason why so many of the great travel writers, by nature, are enthusiasts: not just Pierre Loti, who famously, infamously, fell in love wherever he alighted (an archetypal sailor leaving offspring in the form of Madame Butterfly myths), but also Henry Miller, D.H. Lawrence or Graham Greene, all of whom bore out the hidden truth that we are optimists abroad as readily as pessimists as home. None of them was by any means blind to the deficiencies of the places around them, but all, having chosen to go there, chose to find something to admire.
