  1. In the H01 section study guide question 6 states: "In the Raphael painting School of Athens, is Aristotle pointing up? LH p.10", and the answer given is yes. However in many other study guides provided and in the LH book p.10 it states that Plato is pointing up and Aristotle is pointing outwards. I believe the correct answer should be no.
