Philosophers Guild (H)

In group today, we talked in more depth about our project. We discussed the main ideas we wanted to include, such as topics and certain clips from the Monty Python series. Many of us decided which passage we wanted to read and report on. Every now and again we would tie our discussions about the project to free will and predetermination.

    Factual Question:
    Who authored the book Anarchy, State, and Utopia?
    Robert Nozick

    Philosophical Question:
    Does free will exist? and can free will exist?

    Comment Here:
    The Essays in our project book are not only hysterical but seem very informative. I re watched the Holy Grail this weekend and cannot wait to see how our presentation will go. I think we can only go up from here.

  7. Factual Question: Who challenged Anselm's argument by telling a story about the perfect island? (Guanilo of Marmoutiers)
    Discussion Question: Do you feel that Anselm's argument is sound? Does it seem like he his bridling the imagination?

    I, as well, have never seen Monty Python so I am excited to learn about some new stuff and especially how you tied it to free will and predestination!
