Section 10; Group 3 for 20 Nov Class

Last class, we had to table any real discussion time so that we could go over some info about the upcoming final requirements and let another student give his final presentation.  So, today, we'll try to get back to it.

Post your FQ, DQ, Links in this thread.  Here are mine...

FQ:  William James called this “at once the most sublime and the most trivial of human pursuits.”

DQ:  Do you think your dreams can tell you anything about your doubts, regrets and the road not traveled, or in general how you really would be if not constrained by society?

Link: From a singer who is almost criminally unknown, Brandi Carlile.  Her live shows are even better than her records; a rarity for recording artists these days.  Her song “Dreams” talks about  love, but I like to look at the chorus and think that it can apply to all dreams, representing their potential to be things we repress to fit into society, be it consciously or unconsciously.  Paging Dr. Freud...

Mind, can you read my mind?
Has it come undone, am I showing signs?

And now, in my dreams
I can feel the way, I can just come clean
I keep it to myself, I know what it means

I can't have you, but I have dreams
I have dreams, I have, I have, I have dreams

    Sartre was a blank philosopher.

    Sartre believed in choice and that you should be able to choose how you want to live. So how would you want to live?
