    Influencia de los conceptos filosóficos en la construcción narrativa de La insoportable Levedad del Ser : Proyecto de Grado
    (Medellín : Marymount School Medellín, 2021) Zuluaga Rodríguez, Camila
    Literature is important for the world because it is a cultural synthesis, since it portrays societies and behaviors of a time or community. It is also linked to philosophy, since it reflects the concepts it proposes. Analyzing literature, from this point of view, is a way to understand what the various thinkers propose and what man feels, thinks and experiences. For this reason, this paper investigated the way in which the philosophical concepts of lightness, weight, body and soul developed by Milán Kundera in The Unbearable Lightness of Being intervene in the narrative construction he proposes, and their participation in the eternal return from the contradiction posed by the duality of lightness-weight. The aforementioned philosophical concepts thus have an impact on the configuration of the main characters of the work. On the other hand, at the methodological level, a qualitative approach was used: first, a documentary review was used as a tool for the construction of the theoretical framework; then, descriptions, experiences and dialogues of the characters were delved into, based on the strategy of literary tracing to analyze the work under study, reaching the conclusion that the philosophical concepts mentioned end up affecting the narrative itself.

    (Medellín : Marymount School Medellín, 2021) Valencia Tirado, Valeria
    The design of a product is a key factor to make a customer feel satisfied with the product and, as time goes by, build loyalty with them. Each company has different innovation methods, these vary depending on the public they want to reach and the company's mission. It should be noted that in order to achieve loyalty there is a need for a process that requires both marketing and design. This research seeks to understand how this process in a toy company such as LEGO affects customer loyalty over time. To achieve this, the process was started by analyzing LEGO toys through the study of the design of their products. In addition, the strategies used, the patterns in their designs and the relationship that exists between them, and their permanence in the market were identified and recognized.

    La realidad carcelaria colombiana y las fallas más frecuentes en el sistema : Proyecto de Grado
    (Medellín : Marymount School Medellín, 2021) Bonnet Bastidas, Isabella
    This study aims to show how the prison system in Colombia has failed since its inception and has brought with it an effect on the social and economic context of the country. Moreover, the violation of Human Rights that occurs due to the general overcrowding of the prisons will be studied as well as the problems it causes in the economy of the country, the health of the inmates and the mistreatment they suffer. The purpose of this project is to understand the reality of prisons in Colombia and explain to society what it’s like to live inside the penitentiaries as well as the most frequent failures in the system and the abuses that this population undergoes. This will be achieved through document tracking and the application of a qualitative and quantitative methodology which seeks to show the opinion of experts and how little knowledge the general population has regarding the subject. Likewise, an additional search is done regarding success stories of the rehabilitation and reintegration of prisoners in other countries and how this gives them the possibility of life without crime. Among the success stories in prison systems, it will focus on countries such as Finland and Norway which show a prestigious structure with low recidivism rates and a small prison population. In addition, programs created by the actress Johana Bahamon at the “Acción Interna” foundation will be mentioned. With all the information collected, the different cases of corruption and the effect they have had on civil society and the prison population are discovered, which, due to the different shortcomings, tend to relapse and fail to get away from the vicious circle of reentering the prison system.
