Section 10, Group 3, Peripatetic Team 1

I suppose the 2nd peripatetic group can post on here too if they want, since we met up as our orbits of COE brought us back together and had a large group talk at the end of our time.

The first walking group was the larger one, and we discussed our group project instead of a philosophical topic.  Headway on that was, lacking to use a kind term.  We need to get it hashed out on Tuesday.

On a plus note, the weather is getting beautiful and being able to get out of the classroom and enjoy the fresh air was well worth it.  I hope to do it again as weather permits.


  1. "Discussing the group project" shd coincide with a philosophical topic ASAP... if more discussion time on Tuesday will help, you can have it.

    Billy, would you mind emailing me your Scoreboard spreadsheet? I forgot to send it to myself on Thursday.

    Did Descartes believe other animals, other than human, have a soul?
    No he didn't

    Speciesism is what?
    Treating animals interest differently.

    Do you think harming animals is morally right why or why not?

    Do you think Descartes, according to his philosophical belief about animals being machines, was morally right to dissect live animals? why or why not

    PETA argues that no animals should be harmed in research.

    FQ: True or False, The Consolation of Philosophy by Boethius was a collection written over the course of his entire life.

    DQ: Put yourself in Boethius' sandals. If you were in prison, what might you chose to write about?

    Relevant Link/Text: In honor of Boethius' prison writing, here is a list of ten very influential books written by people while in prison. You will notice a few that have become cultural legends. Guess it says something about having the time to focus on the writing without distraction.

    Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes
    The Travels of Marco Polo by Rustichello da Pisa
    Civil Disobedience by Henry David Thoreau
    Letter From Birmingham Jail by Martin Luther King Jr.
    Short Stories by O. Henry
    De Profundis by Oscar Wilde
    Conversations with Myself by Nelson Mandela
    Our Lady of the Flowers by Jean Genet
    The Enormous Room by e. e. cummings
    In the Belly of the Beast by Jack Abbott
