Peter Steiger 9 September 2016 Ph 100 Quiz ★ Explain in detail the assessment, grading and attendance policies for Ph 100. ○ Assessment: 3 parts - preparation, examination, and summation ■ Preparation will be assessed by active participation in class and quizzes ● In order to fully participate in class the assigned readings need to be read before class. ■ Examination will be the two midterms and final exam ● Each exam will be two written essays based on the reading assignments and class lectures ○ The two midterms cover the material for that section (i.e. love, friendship, and happiness) ○ The final will be cumulative ■ Summation is the optional section (required if trying for an A) ● Includes either reading one of the optional books and attending all six additional discussion meetings or reading both books and writing a 10 page compare and contrast research paper on them. ○ The two books are the Life of the Mind and A Guide for the Perplexed. ○ Grades: 3 parts - (same as assessment) preparation, examination, and summation ■ Preparation = 55% of final grade ● Attendance = 36% ● This Quiz = 4% ● Journals = 15% ■ Examination = 35% of final grade ● Midterms = 10% x 2 = 20% ● Final Exam = 15% ■ Summation “optional” = 10% of final grade ● Six extra discussion meetings or Research Paper = 10% 1 ○ Attendance: ■ Each Lecture is worth 1.5% of final grade ● Missing a class without an excused absence will result in a 1.5% grade deduction. ○ Excused absence will be granted at Steiger’s discretion and requires a meeting and a 750 word typed essay summarizing the readings discussed in class ■ This must be done within one week of missing class ★ In the reading selection from Plato’s Phaedo, the dialogue provides an initial insight into the nature of philosophy. According to Plato, what is philosophy and what kind of life does a true philosopher live? Explain the link between philosophy and death as Plato sees it. ○ Plato see philosophy as preparing the soul for the wealth of wisdom and pure knowledge that it will receive once it is separated from the body (Death) ○ The body with its senses and needs distracts the soul from the true FORMS. ■ Concepts and ideas that the physical body cannot interpret, only the soul ■ Thus the need for separation of the body and soul ● The true philosopher does this through asceticism ○ The intentional limiting of bodily pleasures ○ If someone is seeking pure knowledge and wisdom, how can they be fearful of anything, especially death. ■ Death is the ultimate separation of the soul from the body ■ Philosophers also know that everything that lives will eventually die, so why fear something that will happen eventually. ○ Believe that the further you can get the soul from the body, the clearer you can think and understand the true forms. ■ In death your soul will experience the purest of wisdom and knowledge, but unless prepared during life, the soul will be too overwhelmed and not able to fully grasp the extreme purity of the Forms, wisdom, and knowledge. ■ Not up to the philosopher to determine when to die. ● Must continue to keep body alive by only the necessities, until an outside source (gods?) determines it is proper time for complete separation of the body and soul. 2
