Meandering thoughts about life, philosophy, science, religion, morality, politics, history, Greek and Latin literature, and whatever else I can think about to avoid doing any real work.
Dr. Carson,Reading through your earlier posts, I wanted to express my admiration for your Fall 2005 Philosophy 101 class. I earned a D+ and take complete responsibility for it. You made Philosophy 101 exponentially more interesting than I'd expected, and I always enjoyed your recalcitrant profanities and sagacious eloquence-----instead of looking at your notes every ten seconds like many professors, you spoke like a God of Philosophy. You also related the text to modern events without being preachy-----I personally think its essential that professors retain a nebulous perspective. Many of my peers agree. So for every ignoramus who derides your teaching style, there's always someone to support it.-T. Speaker
TomThanks for your encouraging words! If I could give grades based on proper attitude, I'd give you an A+, not because you liked my class, but because it sounds as though you are intellectually curious, and that's the most important thing. Don't be afraid to try other philosophy courses!
