Class Discussion

We will use zoom for class discussion, meeting at the same time as class, but online. Please download the client here for your computer, laptop, or smartphone. You do not need an account, nor do you need to pay for the service. I will text a meeting ID and meeting password to the class via our class GroupMe and via email about 15 minutes prior to class. We will also use the same zoom room for the dedicated office hour immediately following class.

Video Lecture

Today we'll set up the fundamental question of persons and try to motivate our inquiry by reflecting on the nature of human persons and some of the debates that emerge. I don't think a video lecture is suitable, but you should expect one for next time, as the topic grows increasingly technical.
