Highlanders (H)

Today we were able to go outside and has out how our group project will work. Everyone will send their individual research on each philosopher to Leigh (mls4n), who will put it together in a cohesive presentation. We decided to focus on the topic of love, and how each philosopher we have studied would react to the question of love. See you guys on Tuesday! Study for that test!


  1. I wasn't sure if we were supposed to do one of these, but here it goes:

    Factual Question: What work is Niccolo Machiavelli most known for? (Answer: The Prince)

    Discussion Question: Is it better to be feared, or loved?

    I think we made a lot of progress in our presentation. I'm working on compiling the powerpoint for our display, but I think that once we get our "roundtable" of philosophers worked out, it should be a pretty entertaining and informative presentation. I'm really looking forward to it.

    Link: Here's just a link to "The Prince" because I believe everyone should read it in their lifetime. Poor Niccolo gets a bad rap.

  2. Factual question:
    At what age did Thomas Hobbes die?
    Discussion: what qualities do you believe a good leader should have
