The Last Class, My Final Article
This is our last class! I can't say i'm not excited for the end of class because that just means a huge break until next semester. However, I have enjoyed this class and the topics discussed in it. Because this is the last article that i will be posting, I think i would like to just reflect on class throughout the semester. This class has been amazing for me when reading about philosophy and discussing it among my classmates. i wish the course of philosophy could go on because and I could have at least one day a week to discuss different philosophical matters along with my peers because I truly love philosophy. Although, I have not really come up with new ideas on my own throughout this semester, I have learned and taken a liking to different philosophical ideas from different philosophers. Another important thing about this class that i have enjoyed was definitely the peripatetic aspect. I deeply enjoyed walking outside with my classmates with the sole purpose of thinking and discussing ideas. Having these peripatetic principles impressed on me has changed how i think. Whenever i am moving or walking for the sake of walking, I now find myself deep in thought and i enjoy that. That is most definitely the thing i am going to miss most about this class. Now it is time to say goodbye to this class and to greet the end of what was a wonderful semester. I wish everyone a Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays for those of you who prefer and a Happy New Year!! Good luck to all and thank you to our professor, Phil Oliver, who did a great job finding interesting philosophers to research and learn about!
