Week 1 (August 23 – 27)

My office hours this week are Monday in my office from 3:00 – 4:00+, and Tuesday via GoogleMeet (https://meet.google.com/ywx-xbsw-pkr) 10:00 – 12:00.

PHL100. First, answer the questions on the pop quiz and bring them to class. I’m mostly just polling you; I want to learn what you think, and later we’ll see if you changed your mind in any way. Second, read the passage from Plato (remember, this is a dialogue between Socrates and Glaucon). Answer the questions on BlackBoard.

PHL111. Read chapter 1 of the textbook. For Friday: hand in at the beginning of class your answers to problems 1-5 at the end of chapter 1. Each of these problems asks you to come up with 5 examples; to make the homework shorter, for each problem just come up with 2 examples for each of the 5 problems (so 10 cases total). Handwritten is acceptable (for many of our later homeworks there are special symbols or tables and it is too much work to try to type them). Try problem 6 if you like, as extra-credit.

PPE495. Answer the questions on the pop quiz and bring them to class. Then we’re going to read The Fable of the Bees. I’ll bring you a copy!
