Salutations!

This week's meeting will be on Wednesday, February 15th, inside Center for Instruction 122! We'll be discussing if governments have the same moral duties/obligations that individuals within a society do. We'll also be talking about the first episode in the first season of Black Mirror, which we will use to direct our discussion of government.

Lastly, if you thought that what Berkich was talking about last Thursday was gibberish, we'll be staying behind to discuss Turing Machines!

2017 Colorado Summer Seminar in Philosophy

The University of Colorado, Boulder is now accepting applications for the 2017 Colorado Summer Seminar in Philosophy.
 
The Colorado Summer Seminar in Philosophy is intended for outstanding advanced undergraduates who are considering graduate school in philosophy. The aim is to introduce students to the atmosphere of a graduate-level seminar, giving them a chance to explore their philosophical abilities and interests before they commit to a graduate program.
 
Review of applications will begin on March 1 and will continue until all available positions are filled.

There is no application form.

Applicants should provide the following:

  • A cover letter including your name, mailing address, email address, and an account of who you are and why you are interested in the program.
  • A letter of recommendation from someone who has taught you philosophy. The letter should address the quality of your contributions to class discussion and your ability to interact productively with other students as well as the quality of your written work for the class.
  • A copy of your college transcript. (An unofficial copy is fine.)
  • A short philosophical essay. (The shorter the better; ordinarily, it should be something written for a class.)

Electronic submission of materials is strongly preferred. Applicants should send the cover letter, transcript and essay in pdf or Word format to the Director of the Seminar, David Boonin, at david.boonin@colorado.edu.

For more information, visit the summer seminar's webpage at:

Logic SI Jesse Slaten

Finding entailment elusive? Validity vexing? Fallacies foolish?

Are you dubious about deduction? Puzzled by proofs?

Are disjunctions distracting? Conjunctions confusing? Conditionals confounding?

Our Supplemental Instructor, Jesse Slaten, is highly qualified, enormously patient, amazingly clear, and eager to help all students of PHIL 2303 (including honors!)

His hours at CASA are:

TR 5:00 - 7:00
MW 9:00 - Noon

Don't wait until the day before an exam to get his help! Take some time each week to visit Jesse and get help with the problems.
