Q1. Choose one of the following questions to answer:

  • What is the ultimate nature of reality?
  • Can we know anything at all? If so, what, and why do you think so? If not, why not?
  • How, in general, ought we to live?

Begin by stating your position and offering your best argument in its favor.

Then consider what you take to be the best potential objection to your argument or position.

Finally, defend your argument or position from the potential critique.

Q2. 100-150 WORDS. Critically engage with a peer’s post. Some ways to critically engage with a peer:

  • Pose an objection to their argument or position that is not considered in their post.
  • Offer an alternative reply to the objection to their position that they consider in their post.
  • Draw out a consequence from their position that is interesting and not discussed in their post.
  • Raise a critical question about their position and then explain why the question is important.

Avoid simply agreeing with their position wholeheartedly or just responding to your peer by restating the argument you make in your own post.

Peer’s Post:

What is the ultimate nature of reality?                          

I think that reality is ultimately chaos that has no true meaning.  Life is chaos, something that even though it might be bound to universal rules. The world has seemingly infinite possibilities,  possibilities we may not fully understand why they happen. Everyone has had something unpredictable in life, things happen that nobody can predict. Nobody can predict the mindset of a child that has been born,  even if it can be something that is influenced, ultimately nature always has a role in how a person might react, and because of this even people are unpredictable. With the knowledge we have, we can always try to guess something will happen. If a kid falls off a high tree he will indeed get hurt, though some have taken such falls and not have a  scratch on them. It is best to try to adapt to the chaos of life and embrace it even. 

Certain things can be influenced however. If you type the “f” key  on your keyboard you can likely expect the letter “f” to pop up,  likewise if you replicate an experment showing that water boils at at a  certain temperature, then it will likely boil when you keep using that  temperature. However the f key when you presss it can get stuck, at  times it can accidentally switch over how the keyboard works on your  computer (such as making a QWERTY keyboard a DVORAK keyboard) and you  may end up typing a “u” instead. Likewise replicating an experiment can  sometimes yield different results. Maybe the boiling temperature boils  when it reaches five minutes instead of ten, likewise altitude has an  effect on how the temperature boils, so said water may not even boil at  all. Overall life and reality is unpredictable, maybe not totally random  but unpredictable, therefore in terms of metaphysics it would be chaos.

I’m working on a literature discussion question and need support to help me learn.

Discussion board

when you finish, can you reply to this discussion board as well:

To be honest, I have difficulty sympathizes with most of the characters  and their actions. While I wouldn’t say I sympathize, I do respect  Athena as she seems to be the only character who is able to be  reasonable in her judgment. I found it difficult to understand both  Clytemnestra and Agamemnon. I can understand the feeling that Agamemnon  is a “tragic” hero, he does appear to be a strong commander of the Greek  Armies, however I do deeply struggle with him sacrificing his daughter  for the war. Because of this, I can understand Clytemnestra’s deep anger  with Agamemnon. Yet still, as shown through the practices of Athena, I  still do not believe we are meant to find justification is the revolving  murders taking place. While we may be able to sympathize with  Clytemnestra because of the death of her daughter, I think the depiction  of her adultery is meant to cause the audience to lose sympathy for  her. While I do not necessarily agree with this opinion, I do think this  is a common trait used to paint characters in an unfavorable light.

reply to this as well:

The most sympathetic character in this trilogy, according to my perception, is the prophetess Cassandra, because she makes other characters and the audience empathize for her suffering. I believe this is the character that was designed to be the easiest to have compassion. Clytemnestra and Agamemnon were complex characters in terms of understanding them as an audience. Agamemnon was meant to be a tragic hero, especially because of the action he took to sacrifice his daughter. On the other hand, I find Clytemnestra to be the most interesting character, by which I do not mean likable since she was a liar and a murderer after all. I find it despicable to have an affair, which, in my opinion, is not justified by the long time she had to wait for her husban.

Poetry Explication:

For this assignment, you will be asked to write an essay that analyzes one of the themes presented in any of the poems read during the first few weeks of the semester. ( you did the work for the first few weeks of the semester. So you can find the requirements in the previous questions).

Poem

If you choose to analyze one poem, there are three main questions you need to consider.

  • What is the poem about?
  • What poetic elements (imagery, rhyme pattern, symbols, etc) is the poet using to develop his/her ideas? 
  • Why did the poet choose these elements? What did these elements allow the poet to convey?

2. Comparing Poems

If you choose to compare two poems, be sure that the poems explore a similar topic.

  • What are the poems about?
  • What is the poet’s point of view on that subject?
  • What poetic elements (imagery, rhyme pattern, symbols, etc) is the poet using to develop his/her ideas?
  • What are the similarities and/or differences in the poets’ use of poetic elements?

Be sure to explicate the poem, just like we’ve done with all the poems in class.  Identify the main idea of each stanza and then identify those elements used to develop and/or communicate that idea. Analyze the poem’s structure, line by line. Pay close attention to punctuation, spacing, italics, word choice (keywords: connotation/denotation), symbols, metaphors, similes, rhyme pattern, imagery, tone, and title. Develop an arguable thesis that clearly presents your interpretation of the poem. As you develop your interpretation, be sure that you have:

  1. identified the theme of the poem (the main idea of the poem, not just the topic. If the poem is about love, don’t just tell me it’s a love poem. Tell me what the poet is suggesting about love in his/her poem)
  2. identified specific examples in the poem to support your interpretation (identify the imagery, metaphors, symbols, etc)
  3. interpreted the poetic elements (explain how the imagery, symbols, metaphors, etc contribute to the development of the theme).
