Section 12 Group 2

Our Walk about this afternoon was rather short because we only had about 15 mins to talk.  Our first discussion topic was if you can just say your a philosopher does that make you one?  many of the people in our group said yes you could.  While Evan remember something from the beginning of the semester where he said that if you have something that can be refuted its a philosophy which makes you a philosopher.  then we discussed some of the final report topics in our group.
