Over the past 23 blog posts, you have been responding to questions I've asked or issues we've discussed as a class. You've synthesized ideas from dozens of people, analyzed works spanning over 3000 years, tackled some of the most difficult and enduring questions facing philosophers, and made connections with both depth and breadth.
For your final blog, I will ask you the question I started with as I started preparing to teach this class: Where do we go from here?
is your chance to write in your own way about the entirety of your
experience with me. You get to make some final connections and summarize
the point of your own growth and development as a reader, writer,
thinker, teacher, and learner. Consider the major themes of the class as
well as your thinking on what we've done that continues to resonate
I am not putting a word limit on this blog
and I'm not going to specify what you link to here. Please, if you can,
consider the entirety of the experience, as well as the works we've read
recently that talk about freedoms, laws, morals, ethics, hope, and
despair. Take a look over the other posts you've done and see how your
thinking and writing developed over the course of your Quest English
I'm very much looking forward to reading
what you come up with. This could be my last chance to read your writing
for a while. This experience has changed me for the better in so many
ways. I'm looking forward to seeing what you have to say.
