skickat meddelande: I am finishing up some of the readings and will be adding to the discussion on the activity wall shortly. Thank you for your flexibility regarding deadlines. I enjoyed tremendously reading The Death of Ivan Illyich. It seemed so familiar. It echoed so much of my experience working with patients and families while I worked with hospice. It seems that no matter who we are in life, with our vastly different experiences, we can be very much the same at our end. I have known many Ivans.
skickat meddelande: Greetings friends: It seems that most of us (myself included) are having a bit of a slow start. A few have just joined us as well. So, I thought it best to keep the comments going on Unit 1. Why don't we aim for having everyone post and/or reply to comments relating to Unit 1 by the end of this weekend (10/15)? Please post your comments on the following issues on the Activity Wall: 1) Describe the philosophical questions that surround the inevitable biological event of death; 2)Compare the philosophical notion of mind/body dualism with the idea of physicalism and how these doctrines imply different attitudes about death; 3) Discuss the fundamental arguments that Plato makes in his work Phaedo in regards to the immortality of the soul.
