NoPhi 16-3

Hi, group!

Today we had the option of walking and philosophizing outside, but a few of us stayed inside and talked with Dr. Oliver. Mostly we discussed Russell and Ayer, truth and a little bit of atheism, but I'm curious to know what everyone else who was outside talked about. Please tell!

See you Wednesday,
-Hailey Lawson


  1. I bet that was fun! I wish our class could walk and philosophize outside, but it is always too cold on our class days.

  2. I agree. It would be nice, but it is far too cold.
