 I should probably make a habit of somehow documenting my assignments and then giving it a big fat "check" in some box. 

Maybe I'll do a thing here where I post assignments I should be doing tonight and then making a following post saying what I've finished. 

...starting sorta now? 

Logic: 

9/30 reading: basic concepts, 1-2, 1-3. pages 1-16

10/2 Argument forms (lecture?) 

History of Ancient Philosophy: (9/30, 10/2, 10/4) 

Read: Parmenides, The Poem of Parmenides; Russell, Introduction to Mathematical Philosophy, ch. 16. Zeno of Elea. Leucippus and Democritus. 

Discussion Questions: How do Leucippus and Democritis accommodate Parmenides' argument that nothing can come to be from nothing (this is often called the "Eleatic Challenge")? Is this an adequate accommodation? Why or why not? 2). Pick out one of Zeno's Paradoxes and answer the following questions: a). do you accept the paradoxical conclusion? b). if not, diagnose where teh puzzle goes wrong. If so, account for the apparent existence of plurality and change in the world.

Ethics: 
10/1

1. Plato, “Morality as the Advantage of the Stronger…”
2. Aristotle, “Moral Virtue, How Produced”
4. Hobbes, “Of the Natural Condition of Mankind and the Laws of Nature”
5. Rousseau, “The Natural State of Man”

10/3

6. Hume, “Affection of Humanity: The Foundation of Morals”
7. Kant, “The Noble Descent of Duty”
10. Nietzsche, “The Origins of the Herd Morality”
