First Post: When posting for the first time (Thursday), be as thorough as possible. For example, if you are having difficulty interpreting a piece of the text, start off by explaining what you are trying to read, and how you understand it (even if you know it’s wrong). This helps your colleagues and myself approach the problem from your perspective. If you are disputing something a philosopher says, give us a quote or a summary of the argument, then explain why you think it is incorrect.
Reply Posts: When replying to other students (Sunday), it is good practice to reply to specific issues, or answer specific questions. General statements do not make your professor too happy. Examples of a poor reply: “I think so too” or “I agree with you”
Examples of a better reply: “I think so too because….and also was thinking that….. (gives us some support, some reasons for your opinion).
Post length: This depends on the problem you are discussing. Two paragraphs as a general rule is a good minimum length. This is your chance to discuss and work through the problems or ideas you have. It is much easier to learn philosophy if you are able to communicate it (even if your interpretation is wrong). We are not here to memorize a bunch of old dead white men’s ideas. We are here to work through them and see what sense we can make of them.
This week, we read about what philosophy is, and some of the things that differentiate philosophy from other types of academic pursuits. You are not required to write about these topics, but here are some possible discussion prompts:
