Philosopher's Guild- H

We need to pick Authors :)
We talked about various topics including some about freewill versus fate/God. Dr. Phil talked to us some on his opinion on the topic and I missed the last part of the discussion time so if someone wants to fill that in that would be great :)


  1. Yes we do need to pick authors! Thanks anna for being on the ball...
    Factual: Did Russell think someone HAD to be faithful to their partner in a good Christian marriage? (nope!)
    Discussion: Russell says Christianity, Islam, Judaism, and Hinduism simply make the world worse. Do you agree? Why or why not? Give examples to support your claim.
    Comments: I love talking about Nietzsche so I had a good time last class period.
    Links: yeah this dude is awesome... http://www.nndb.com/people/954/000044822/Russell-2.jpg
    I will comment on another post this very second of our lives...

  2. I think your conversation on freewill must have been very fascinating!

  3. Factual question: What philosopher is known for the Ramsey Theory? (Frank Ramsey)
    Discussion question: What is the concept of truth?
    Comment: we had a nice discussion on free will and God. It was nice to have the whole group there for a discussion.
    Link: here is a link on the redundancy theory of truth http://www.oxfordreference.com/view/10.1093/acref/9780199541430.001.0001/acref-9780199541430-e-2666

  4. Factual Question: How did Frank Ramsey die? (Hepatitis and a wrongful surgery)
    Discussion Question: Is our Universe truly infinite?
    Comment: Our discussion last week was really interesting.

    This is pretty confusing.
