Dr. Michael LaBossiere's Philosophy Classes

Philosophy Stuff


with 21 comments

The site is divided into posts and pages. The pages function like typical web pages. There is a fixed page for each course and also pages for FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions), my office hours, and other teaching related stuff. Use the links to the right to navigate to these pages.

The posts are essentially blog posts, with a post for each class being taught during a specific semester. They are labeled based on the course, semester and year. So, to find your class, look for those things. I will use the posts to (oddly enough) post information specific to that semester’s class. Since it uses the WordPress blog software, these posts have a full featured comment section. Feel free to leave comments that are questions, discussions or otherwise relevant to the specific class. Spam, you might imagine, will be filtered out.

The class files are available as Adobe PDF files. If you do not have the Adobe reader, you can get it for free here.

You can check your grades here.

You can follow me on Twitter for class related tweets, such as reminders of test dates.

For students enrolled in classes that have papers, I would suggest getting a free cloud storage account with Dropbox Google Drive, or Skydrive . I also recommend Google Docs.

  6. Dr. LaBossiere, In The Readings Online Referring To This Link =>https://mclphilosophy.files.wordpress.com/2011/08/introreadingsf07.pdf Which Page Are We Up To On That. I Have All The Notes, But I Am Trying To Read, and See If I Messed Anything, But The Titles Are A Bit Redundant No Offense, So I Just Want To Know Which Page Should I Read Up To?

    • We finished the part one readings on Friday, completing The Apology. When you see:

      “Readings Part Two: Philosophy & Religion
      The Ontological Argument
      From Proslogion, translated by Sidney Norton Deane and published by Open Court in 1903.
      -Saint Anselm”

      You’ll have reached the end of the readings for part one.

  8. One of the question on quiz # 12 we did not go over in class.


    November 7, 2012 at 8:30 pm

    • True, I wrote the quiz before class and was unsure how much I would cover. However, the material is in the notes for this quiz and hence the question is still legitimate. The best 10 quizzes out of 16+ still count, though so that should compensate for any problems with that question.

    • Go to https://famu.blackboard.com/

      You sign in using the same ID and password that you use with iRattler and your FAMU email. If your password has expired you’ll need to reset it. You might have to go to the EIT folks to get this done.
