Philosophy 101: Knowledge and Certainty

Ms. Clancy's Senior English

Hello senior Philosophy and Lit students,

Hope you are enjoying your snow time off. This is the blog post I am asking you to comment on for our recent readings on “Knowledge” through the philosophical writings of Plato, Aristotle, and Descartes.

Spend your second snow day watching the TED talk from Ken Taylor who explains “The Benefits of Philosophy and Reason”. Then, in the comments section, please post a 3-5 sentence (or more!) response to what Taylor is suggesting about reason and how it might relate back to our discussion and reading from the last five class meetings (disconnected by snow, unfortunately).

Hope you enjoy the TED talk and be sure to e-mail me if you have difficulty signing in or posting to the comments section.

See you on Wednesday for a full day of school (pending another storm…)
Ms. Clancy
