17/1 - The Nameless 8: Presentation Outline

The outline for our group presentation will go something like the following:

I. Brief Introduction (I'll do this)
II. The Virtues of The Wizard of Oz (Taylor Reed)
III. Oz Never Did Give Nothing to the Tin Man (Lee Gish)
IV. "I'm Melting! I'm Melting!" (Kayla Pack)
V. The Possible World of Oz (Krystin Massa)
VI. Dude, When Did Pink Floyd Write a Soundtrack for The Wizard of Oz? (Chelsea Newsbaum)
VII. "I'm Not That Girl" (Molly Brown)
VIII.  Wicked? It's Not Easy Being Green (Kathryn Mills)

I appear to be missing information from Taylor Elder. If I've overlooked it please point it out to me or remind me in a comment below so that I can add you to the final copy of our group outline.


  1. Any additional reading list suggestions, beyond "The Wiz & Philosophy"?

    1. I think Lee's presentation will also include L. Frank Baum's book, but don't quote me on that. Also, what Molly said. And if you wanted to give Dark Side of the Moon a listen, it would be relevant.

  2. Well Im not sure what you could read about it but my part speaks about the play "Wicked" and the "Son of a Witch" so maybe if you or someone did not have back ground info on those they could look that up and get familiar with those. But if not I am showing some videos to have an over look at the part I am going to go over. Just a thought.

  3. Your group is doing the Wizard of Oz?! That's so awesome!!

  4. Kathryn Mills11:59 AM CDT

    Kathryn Mills is doing #20: Wicked? "It's not easy being green"
    Sorry I'm so late with posting this. I thought I did already.

    1. Great! I'll add you to the outline. You might have mentioned it already and then I lost it with all the study guides. Thanks for updating me.

  5. FQ: how man Oz books are there?
    DQ: Should we accept the world for what it is or try and change it?
    go nameless eight. I have the book. poor tin man http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tGbfs6HZDNo

  6. The presentation was very creative and you guys worked great together to pull this off.

  7. Taylor Reed (17-1)
    I very much enjoyed taking part in this presentation. I liked everyone's videos and descriptions. The section and the meaning of water to kill the witch was very interesting, as well as the different theories behind dark side of the rainbow.
    My factual question is derived from Little History of Philosophy: Who developed the Method of Cartesian Doubt?
    For my discussion question I'd like to ask if you've ever experienced a dream that felt very, very real? Have you ever heard of lucid dreaming?
    Since it's October, almost Halloween, I decided to include a link to article describing hidden philosophical meanings in certain classic zombie films:
