The Exam #1 grade distribution & answer key are now posted on the Exams page.

Exam #2 will be given in class on Monday, October 12th.

Exam #1 is scheduled for Monday, 9/21, and the review sheet is now available on the Exams page.

Some students are having trouble with this. We use the default frequency “AA” in this class. If you need to change to that (because the clicker says something else when you turn it on), instructions are here. Most of you have the iClicker2, where the procedure is just this:

  1. Press and hold the Power button until the two-letter frequency on the LCD flashes
  2. Use the A-E buttons to enter the new two-letter frequency code. A checkmark appears on the LCD indicating the frequency change was successful.

Day 1 overheads

The overheads for Day 1 are posted now on the Overheads page. (Normally, I’ll just post them and not make any special note of that on the main page.)

This the home page for Prof. Ron McClamrock’s Philosophy 111, The Mind and the World, being taught in the Fall semester of 2015.

Here’s a brief course description:

A survey and critical examination of topics in contemporary philosophy, focusing largely on the relationship between the human mind and the natural world. Topics will include skepticism about knowledge of the external world, the relationship between the mind and the brain, the possibility of the mind causing free actions, and the existence or non-existence of God. Grade will be based on a combination of in-class exams (80%) and in-class quizzes and participation (20%, using the iClicker).
