Food for Thought (14)
I apologize for posting on the blog without the post being related to our class (although, since our class IS philosophy, I guess it does relate). I just needed others' insight on an idea I ran across in my religion class, and since I wish to be a Philosophy minor, I was hoping for some other thoughts on a question I stumbled upon... (Anyone, please feel free to comment on this). I was studying a textbook from my Religion class when I came across the Author's claim that "to truly understand something, you must be able to define it." He was referring to the broad topic of religion, but do you agree? I wasn't sure if it was necessary to be able to literally DEFINE religion, or other examples, to actually understand the subject. Thanks! -David S.
