This week, I want you to think about what you expect to get out of  this class. After doing the readings, imagine that a friend or family  member has asked you why you are taking a philosophy class. They may be  wondering what philosophy is, what it is good for, or why you would want  to learn about it. In this discussion board, answer them by explaining  what you’ve read from our first two readings. 

Since you need to  post two responses each week, make one of your posts play the devil’s  advocate. Now YOU can be the inquisitive friend or family member who  isn’t yet convinced that philosophy is worthwhile. Challenge one of your  classmates to answer/defend the importance of philosophy. 

Finally, what do you really think? Is philosophy worthwhile? Why or why not? (I promise I won’t mark you down for being honest! 😉
