Today in class, we’re going to hear each member of the class introduce himself or herself and share a quotation that gets at the question, “What makes life worth living?”

If we have time, we’ll think together a little bit about education itself and watch this video

On Monday next week, we’ll talk about right and wrong–the challenge of moral philosophy.  BEFORE CLASS, please read the chapters associated with right and wrong listed on the syllabus.  (You can find the syllabus in an earlier post.)  This will inform your participation in our class activities that day.  Come ready to discuss and debate!

On Wednesday next week, we’ll think about philosophy of mind.  Please read the mind chapters listed on the syllabus in advance of Wednesday’s class along with the handouts posted in an earlier post, “Where am I” and “Meditations.”  Come ready to work with your mind in many different ways!
