Nameless 8, Phil 17, Group 1
this is Kathryn posting here for the group. Today was interesting, as far as Augustine's views on heaven and hell versus Boethius's thoughts on the "perfection of God," or at least I thought. In group, we discussed frustration over the "ever-loving" scorecard (using my sarcastic voice lol) and brought up thoughts on our group project, which I think will end up leaving me "enlightened" in a sense on how to philosophically look at our topic of choice. We also discussed factual and discussion questions; thank you to my group for being able to elaborate on that for me! Also, just thinking back on today's full class circle, I was pondering on some questions that were raised within myself and would like to get some feedback on what all your personal thoughts are, if you don't mind. Question: when reflecting back on Augistine's thoughts on the subject, do You believe that ALL sufferage (suffering) is evil? Or is it more circumstantial to the situation? Also, is it Really possible to TRULY be free within your mind, when your body is not? [Meaning, do you think freedom is (merely) a state of mind?] *just a few curiousities I have I suppose but look forward to hearing ffrom you guys! See you next monday & have a great weekend.
