The A Team - Section 16

So sorry for the this extremely late post! But Wednesday we discussed our topic for our midterm and distributed jobs and assignments to each group -- which is Batman and Philosophy. Xoe in fact has the book that belongs to this specific topic, and Ben has read it before, so we decided to split up the book into fourth and each create our own little research project with a partner within the group.

4 Speakers: Jordan, Ben Maiya and Chelsea

Book 1: Xoe and Jordan
Book 2: Damon and Maiya
Book 3: Ben and Bianca
Book 4: Chelsea, Jake and Austin

Has anyone been able to do any research over the weekend. or come up with any good ideas? I know that Ben and I are going to start working on this ASAP!


  1. Ben Nguyen 16-19:14 AM CDT

    FQ: What did Aquinas believe the first uncaused cause was? (God)
    Is God supremely good?
    Don't forget that we are also making powerpoint slides or notes to send to me so I can make the powerpoint presentation!

    Here's a link:

    (16-1) Is Batman really all that philosophical, or is it more sociological?
    FQ: According to Anselm, why is God god? (God is the most perfect being)
    DQ: Does the most perfect being necessarily mean the most powerful being?

    Here is a link to a video stating that rationalism creates atheism: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EuxgdkqvuRE

    DQ: Does having a "good" god make a difference?

  5. FQ: Did Anslem believe in God? (yes, he was an Italian priest)
    DQ: Was Anslem's theory really prove that God exists
    I cannot wait to start this batman project! I am still a little confused on the order that the groups are going in?

    I think it will be interesting to think of Batman philosophically.

    FQ: What philosopher wrote the book Proslogion ?

    DQ: Do you agree or disagree with the view of Aquinas about the sequence of cause and effect and his reasoning that god exists?

  7. Your group seems to be on the ball as far as the project goes and the batman idea seems really interesting.
