Plato's Beard (16,2)

Okay, I don't know who was supposed to post, but I guess I'll take care of it.
Wednesday, we walked around and philosophized, so I don't know what everyone talked about.
The topics included Existentialism (French) and the nature of choices we make. I hope everyone enjoyed the weather last week, because today is pretty chilly.
See y'all,


  1. some of us in group 3 talked of Satre's views on free will.

  2. (16-2) It is pretty cold today.
    FQ: What is the name of Ludwig Wittgenstein's first book? (Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus)
    DQ: Do you think it's dangerous to be an unthinking man like Adolf Eichmann?

    1. I'd say its vital to be a thinking man (or woman of course). Much pain and violence comes from blind acceptance in my opinion.

  3. Thanks for taking care of business, Brandon, and everyone else who's stepped up throughout the semester to do that when others have dropped the ball. At this late date, if we've not learned to mark our positions clearly on the scorecard and take turns as author, I don't guess we're going to.

  4. P.S. Sam, I think you know "it's cold" does not count as a substantive philosophical comment. That doesn't get you 'round the bases.
