    • PHL 458 Week 4 DQ 3 TO Buy the Tutorial Visit Our Website Tutorial Purchased: 1 Times, Rating:No Rating 3.1 The history of philosophy is full of minor and major philosophers who have used deductive logic to address the tough perennial questions of life related to metaphysics (what is real), epistemology (what is true), and ethics (what is the good life). Some of the issues they have responded to have been quite esoteric, such as where or how the human brain “connects” with the mind and thinking process (Plato & Descartes). Many of the early philosophers tried to explain how life changes, but also maintains some continuity (Pythagoras & Socrates). Others wrestled with the question of how to create and administer a just society (Kant & Rawls). Some have explored the interesting nature of being, and how to be true to that essential nature (Spinoza & Heidegger). Many have debated and explored the nature of language
    • and how it impacts society and power (Wittgenstein & Foucault). And others have made as their major project the creation of a new man who transforms society, hopefully for the better (Hegel & Marx). Their major contributions certainly reflect creative and critical thinking of the highest order. This discussion question will invite us to select a philosopher we would like to explore, and share what we learn with our class members. Make sure you select one who has not yet been addressed in this thread, so we are not all doing Plato or Aristotle. There are several excellent sources of info on philosophy and philosophers on the Internet (Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy and the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy). After you have selected ONE, respond in 200-250 words to the following questions (note you will have to be selective):
    • 3.1 Introduce the class to your philosopher by giving a brief BIO and identifying what question, issue or problem he or she was most concerned with… 3.2 In your research, what assumptions or difficulties did your philosopher seem to encounter in his or her work? 3.3 Select one of his or her major solutions and discuss the creative and critical process you discover in the research you do. 3.4 How do you think your selected philosopher’s project or proposed solution has impacted society and culture?
