Posted for Xoe (16.1)

Can anyone suggest a fix for Xoe? Meanwhile, post comments here.

I have not been able to physically post anything for the last two Monday's now. My computer will not let me. I can comment on other posts, but it is not pulling up an option for me to create a new post or anything. Even when I go to my name on the list of authors or click on my dashboard it does not give me the option to post anything new. It is really aggravating because I like to give people the option to post early and have it done before Tuesday morning. Any way you can help?

    Sounds like it's something with the authorship. Dr. Oliver can probably fix it. The peripatetic thing on Monday was a nice break from sitting in the classroom. My group had a hard time finding things to talk about after the first 15 minutes or so. But we had a pretty good discussion about Marx and communism versus capitalism.

    (16-1) I liked the idea of walking around talking about philosophy, but I agree that we kind ofran out of stuff to talk about.

    DQ: If we believe, like Nietzsche, that there is no god of any kind, then how can we decide what is moral behavior?

    (AP:263 Robern Fulghum)
    DQ: If the whole planet reverted back to the basics of Kindergarten, what would that fix/damage in the process?

    Yea I agree that being outside was amazing but we did lack subjects to talk about. However I enjoyed discussing the philosophy in "Atlas Shrugged".


  4. I really enjoyed taking the peripatetic approach to philosophy. I felt like our conversations went more smoothly while moving. There was not the awkward, blank stare one sometimes gets when there is a lull in the conversation. lets do it again!
