Midterm Group Reports

I'll ask on the 15th and 16th for everyone to identify their groups and topics, and then name an author & rep to consult with me and to post your group's report summary later; but if you figure it out sooner than that let me know, so you can stake your claim to the topic of your group's choice. Or, if you know a topic you'd like to do but haven't yet found anyone to work with, post it here in a comment. Maybe someone will find you.

Those of you planning to use one of the Open Court or Blackwell pop culture & philosophy books had best go ahead and order them, if our library doesn't have what you need. If you don't want to keep it, you can sell it to me when you're done with it.

If you don't yet have a group/topic, check to see if anyone needs a 3d, or 4th. If not, you can do a solo report and need to select your topic ASAP. So far, these groups and/or topics have been claimed:

    1. Depending on what your rep tells me when we consult on this, I might encourage you to rethink your topic. Nostradamus is not considered a philosopher by any credible philosopher I know. But you could report on why he's so widely misperceived as a philosopher, or why so many people are attracted to the idea that a fellow human could ever reliably forecast the future.

  23. My group discussed procrastination and time management with Dr. Oliver, and how people like to say they work well under pressure, but that mentality only causes more pressure and stress.

  24. No Group my Topic is Seneca The Shortness of life
    “The greatest obstacle to living is expectancy, which hangs upon tomorrow and loses today… The whole future lies in uncertainty: live immediately.”
