I'm excited to see what the course is about , something that makes me nervous is not going to be able to understand some things with it being an older level course but I'm looking forward to trying and learning something new.

I think the phrase "the unexamined life is not worth living" means when you just stay in your comfort zone you don't go out and take risk. Life is all about going out and taking risk , make the most of the life you have.

  1. Always keep your wonder- I always wonder what is out there and what is yet to come
  2. Don't jump to conclusions - don't believe everything you hear, people like to talk. Unless you know the whole truth and all the information then you can't jump to the conclusion
  3. Accept the truth- the truth is not always what we wanna hear, but it is good to know the truth. The truth will help us in the end
  4. Divide & conquer- break your big things into smaller things and work with that.. I've used this when the things I was dealing with were just a little too big to handle, take it step by step.
  5. Collect & construct - take everything that you know and think of how you want to handle it
  6. Conjecture & Refute - look at all things and have counter arguments... this is very helpful to use
  7. Revise & rebuild- it's okay to believe in different things and then change, you'll change everyday and make yourself better. Different beliefs is okay
  8. Seek simplicity- prefer the simple over the complicated
  9. Live the truth- make everything you do personal , but make sure it's always the truth
  10. Live the good- do the most in life, you only got this life.. make it good

A belief I have is that I am a Catholic, I would categorize this under sociological and religious. My parents have raised me in the catholic church and it's my religion. That is a belief I have

A belief of mine that I have always question is is there truly a god? I attend church and am a catholic but it's a question that has always come up.

A lot of people deal with doubt, and I agree with Descartes methods. A lot of people believe in things but also have a lot of doubt.

People fall in love to feel wanted and needed by someone

I think Hume means that people become so custom to things that they know what will happen. People become custom to their daily lives that they become so custom that anything else seems out of place.

February 27th

I believe that Hume's work is a waste of time to study, it's easy to know what causes some things and how it's going to affect it. There is no need to go over and study what's going to cause and effect something

February 28th

My definition of knowledge is something you know and you've learned from experienced to have know that knowledge. You can't have knowledge of something when you don't have past experience of.

Unit 3

I would say it's pretty important to understand deductive reasoning. Yes it will help you.

I may be able to find the inaccuracies of an inductive or abductive argument. It would all truly depend on the situation

I don't think I've ever used formal logic in any other classes

March 9th

The most common I feel I use is the "Begging the Question" fallacy.

Unit 4

March 21st

I disagree, no matter if you are being watched or not it's right to know right from wrong. You live how you believe but in my opinion you still must know right from wrong and for everyone that's different.
