wirte entries about the readings listed below. the entries are supposed to be your questions, observations and, in general, your (philosophical) reflections on the readings -- in other words, serious and interesting thought (as with Pascal's "Pensee") it should be at least one entry for each reading assignment. In some cases, you can group together smaller readings and provide one entry for the lot. For example, there were a bunch of "supplementary readings" following the main body of reading for Descartes; and likewise with Leibniz and Kant. You can group the supplementary material together, and provide an entry for those. For those books we read through, obviously, you're only responsible for the material I established as required. For Plato, we covered the entire book (all four dialogues in the book). For Aristotle, see a previous email where I gave the specific sections to read. For Augustine, in addition to what's on the syllabus, we also talked about the material found on our Blackboard site; likewise for Aquinas. For Hume, we covered only the "Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion" and nothing else. each entry should be 1 to 2 pages
