Group 2 Section 12

Hey Guys! So I don't know if you got Morganne's email, but she had technical difficulties being able to make a post.  In our group we talked more about our project and what direction we wanted to take our project in.  For wednesday we need to have our background of our character and the philosophy of each character or which philosophers have something in common with our villain.

For wednesday's readings:

PB Kenny: Jason
LH Anselm & Aquinas: Meagan and Jake

sorry about all the confusion, we will get it all worked out on wednesday. No worries!  Have a good tuesday everyone!
