Group 2, Section 17
Today in class we had our first discussion over the assigned reading. David noted a quote from Socrates that he found particularly interesting and the group discussed our views on the quote. We also talked about the presence of philosophy in tv shows. Finally, we speculated as to whether or not philosophers would make good politicians which resulted in a near unanimous, no. This led us into the question of philosophy's purpose and its necessity in today's society.
