I have really enjoyed the first week of Introduction to Philosophy!   The lectures and readings have me thinking, and I am especially impressed with the erudite  postings in the discussion board.  As a former science teacher I have been particularly interested in the conversations about the relationship of science and philosophy.  We have a unit coming soon that will deal with the philosophy of science, and I am looking forward to learning a lot more about that area.  The oldest student that I have encountered so far is 83, so I am feeling quite young, indeed.  The one thing I have learned, for sure:  I really have a LOT more to learn!

  1. Hi Ruth, Your blog post header is a question, Who knows what is philosophy? I am sure you know the answer. What is your answer to this question?
    I have been in Charlottesville once, coming from Shenandoah. Was a nice trip.

    1. Hi Jaap, I thought I knew, but now I guess I should wait until the end of our course before I answer. Or does one ever know? I am very interested in gaining an international perspective through #introphil.
      I have been to the Netherlands – also very nice!
      Ruth
