Section 14 Group 1

Our group had a very successful conversation today. We started our discussion with the ideas of Nature vs. Nurture, and we included ideas such as foreign cultures as well as the literature of Lord of the Flies. We proceeded to move into the philosophies of mourning and stoicism in relation with the ideas of death and sadness. We ended by declaring that it is a instinctual motive to mourn a loss, and it is inappropriate to be stoic about  a mourning process.
