Section 10, Group 2 Kant Touch This

I had to leave before we discussed authors, so I'm not sure who is up for it. Hence, here ya go. Today in class we took our daily quiz, and then started final presentations. We only got through one presentation, but it was a very fascinating topic about how each of us perceive things and therefore form our own realities. We also reviewed who would be presenting presentations and who would not need to do so due to exemptions.
