Section 10 Group 1
Today we had a 2 in 1 lecture that covered Voltaire, Leibniz, Hume, and Rousseau. Although we didn't get into much of a discussion, I am curious to hear some of your thoughts. I liked the idea of meliorism. What's the point in giving your pessimistic/optimistic opinion? I believe it's almost useless to think that way. Yet, most people side with one perspective. It's so easy to subscribe in this way, and I think it sets an unnecessary roadblock for meliorism.
