I'll start a new thread here for introductions and any other fresh comments anyone would like to add (including your thoughts on the Doubt Quiz in Jennifer Hecht's introduction to Doubt: A History).
At least one person has reported having difficulties publishing here. You can also use the "comments" section to request technical assistance from your classmates. Or just send me your post and I'll put it up for you.
BTW: Did anyone hear Lawrence Krauss on the radio yesterday? Very interesting on "a universe from nothing." (See the link in my morning post.) And I'm reminded of his previous interest in the question of facts & values, which he discussed a couple years ago with philosophers including Sam Harris. Remind of that when we get to Harris in March.
