• Read first the Preface (pg. xix-xx)
• Read also the Introduction to the Blackwell text (pg. 1-3)
• Read the section: Contemporary African Philosophy as Comparative Philosophy (pg. 11-24). This section will introduce some fascinating concepts from a uniquely African point of view on The Concepts of a Person, Morality, Philosopher Kings, Violence, and Democracy. You will be tested on this material, asked about it in Discussion, and potentially expand on it in your Written Assignment.

Part 1

Your FIRST of TWO topics this week:

• What does Voltaire’s expression “If God had not existed, it would have been necessary to invent him” mean to you? Is he right? Wrong? How do you know your position is the correct one?
• You must comment on your peers’ thoughts as well.

Your SECOND topic posts in the Discussion Forum this week:

• Which of the three Philosophers from this week do you find most interesting and why?
1 - 2 paragraphs for each topic.Cite references in apa format. Part 2

Present a 3-page research paper on one of three thinkers presented. How do their thoughts agree or disagree with yours? This is a broad topic, but remember what we said about the exploring many options. You have the option here to teach yourself and your reader more about the philosopher of your choosing from this week.

Remember, your personal philosophy is right for you, you do not have to agree with these scholars or anyone in the class. Please respect yourself, as a learner, enough to state your case, and others enough to allow them to state theirs.

Pick a philosopher from the current unit and describe how that person’s view affects you and your culture. You may wish to ask: What is most interesting? Why did he think that way? What led him to his conclusions? How are his thoughts the same as mine? Do they fit into my culture? Why, or why not? How can his thoughts be used in the modern era, directly by you and your family? At work? You may come up with your own challenges and question too.

This is your paper. The topic is “Philosopher X” and you may take it from there. Do not just right a high-school level book report or biography. This is college; engage the reader in something interesting.
