We'll start on Jesse Prinz's piece "Which emotions are basic?" on Tuesday.  I'll get study questions up by Friday and will have your analyses graded by the end of the weekend.

We're going to skip the Sperber article on epistemic vigilance. I'll put questions up on Daniel Dennett's article "The evolution of reasons" (which connects more naturally to the Flanagan piece anyway) by Friday.  Uh, I mean Saturday, sorry.

Please remember that I will not be able to hold office hours Thursday 3/17.

We'll finish Flanagan and Martin on Tuesday. No new study questions prior to Spring Break. See below in case you missed the new analysis assignment.

Shannon pointed out that I used the wrong point scale for grading the essays. I graded out of 50 rather than 25. I'll change that on your journals so that your raw score is cut in half. This, of course, has no impact on your grade.

Don't forget about Lok Chi Chan's paper on Monday. 1 free point for anyone who attends, and of course you can do a colloquium analysis as well.

We'll finish up Flanagan and Martin tomorrow.

The target article for your next essay is "Personhood and neuroscience: naturalizing or nihilating?" It is uploaded to BB

As noted in class, this essay is due on the 20th because I do not want to assign you work for spring break. However, you may work on it during spring break if you like and turn it in on or before the 27th without penalty.  If you turn it in by the 20th, I'll get it graded during spring break. If you turn it in on the 27th, it may take me up to a week after that.

We'll get started on "Science and the modest image of epistemology by O.Flanagan & S. Martin". It's available in Blackboard. I'll have study questions posted today. In class I said I'd have your first analyses graded by today or Saturday, but it may end up being more like Sunday or Monday. Sorry for the delay.

Thanks again to all of you who have been logging so much time observing and interviewing our second round job applicants.

Also: As I mentioned in class, we will not be meeting on Thursday March 17th.
