    Third vote for thunder dragons!

    Here's a discussion question for tomorrow: do you agree with the view discussed in this reading that America seems to be a profoundly Unphilosophical society, or do you agree with the premise of "America the Philosophical" that the rest of the book will presumably expand on?

    Quiz question: Who said "I think that in no country in the civilized world is less attention paid to philosophy than in the United States"?

    And since my toilet exploded today, have a philosophy and religion shitlist http://www.skepticfiles.org/atheist/shitlist.htm
    Hopefully it can simplify some of the philosophies we'll encounter in this class.

    I like Thunder Dragons as well!

    Discussion question for Wednesday: Why do you think America is not often viewed as a "philosophical" country like some European countries?

    Another Discussion Question: Why do you think some Americans do not take philosophy seriously or just ignore it?

    Quiz Question: Who quoted in Democracy in America that "I think that in no country in the civilized world is less attention to philosophy than in the United States"?

      Oops, I just realized I posted the same fact question that Sara posted. Here's a different one: What Peruvian terrorist group was founded by Abimael Guzman, a philosophy lecturer?
