I hope you’ll take a look around. If you can manage it, I recommend you immediately do a first reading of the main item for Week 3, Frankfort, et. al., Before Philosophy, chapter 1. The prose is a little dated but the argument is quite accessible; it took me an hour and a half recently to read it. The other item which would repay immediate reading is the Gospel of Mark; it’s short so it won’t burden you if you just read it as you would any other narrative. (Then, of course, read them a second time in preparation for class!)
We’re using this WordPress blog as a course website so that you can interact with me and one another frequently outside of class. In order to make that second-nature, please try to create a comment to this post (a “post” is a headline and some text which are added to the blog as a unit). “Hello everybody” will do but you can probably say something of interest to others about the course. The home page is just a list of posts in reverse chronological order. In order to deal with a single post, click on its headline and you will be brought to a page displaying only that post and all its comments. At the bottom, you can add your own new comment! Until I figure out how to disable it, your comment must be approved by me before it will appear (sorry you have to wait!).
