Now that you understand more about your philosopher and their life and works, it is time to begin selecting TWO of the questions that you need to address in order to write your letters and participate in the class discussion. Not only must you understand your own philosopher's point of view, but you also must understand the opposing argument, in order to properly defend the position against other philosopher's ideals.
You are required to select two of these questions to research. To answer the questions, you will need to read works by your philosopher, read secondary analysis of your philosopher's works, and develop clear, thoughtful responses to these questions to share with your fellow philosophers at the salon.
Use the resources linked on the Step Three page to begin your in-depth research.
