Section 12 Group 2 Peripatetic Walk

Yesterday, we had class outside and then our group decided to go on a walk to talk about philosophical things. haha

We journeyed over to the other side of Peck Hall and discussed Dr. Oliver's discussion question over Abraham, and if we would still sacrifice someone for a God/Faith?  The majority of our group said no we wouldn't because we believe the price has already been paid and that there would not be a need to physically sacrifice someone. We then ventured over to the art building and we discussed if it is right to give incentives to people who give to charity.  The overall opinion from our group is that it depends on the heart of the giver.  Sometimes charities will hold an auction of things, if someone is just donating to get stuff then their heart is not in a charity mindset; however, if they give willingly and end up winning something than it's just a plus.  Finally, we went to the science building and discussed some of our groups final projects and asked and gave advice in what they were brainstorming about their projects.

Also, we had one question we were not clear on.  With the new exemption policy if we had perfect attendance until April 1st then a run every day after that are we exempt from both parts of the final or just half of the final?

Well, that's it for Wednesday's class i hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! :]]

    On C.S. Peirce...

    FQ: What philosophical approach, started by American philosopher and scientist C.S. Peirce, become popular in the United States in the late nineteenth century? Pragmatism (LH 165)

    FQ2: Who believed that for a statement to be true there had to be a reasonable experiment or observation to support the claim? C.S. Peirce (LH 165-166)

    DQ: Peirce seemed to believe everything needed to be experimented on or observed to be proven true; do you agree? Do we need to have factual or reasonable proof to believe in a statement?

    LINK: Here's a little more on Peirce, James, and Pragmatism...

  2. DQ: Must we be able to observe something in order for it to be true?
    FQ: Who believed that we do?
