Re: A Cyber-University

OK, Yale Intro to Philo - would this put you off ? BTW, I like the idea of a course 'sell', whereby you get to meet the lecturer, and judge whether the course is for you. http://oyc.yale.edu/philosophy/death/content/sessions/lecture01.html Interesting that much of it is about grades and that this ch...

Re: A Cyber-University

Apologies for going off at a tangent re Note-taking in philosophy, but it does kinda illustrate the value of cyber-universities or web sourcing...And it is part of the philosophical process...innit ? I have a bee in my bonnet right now - I read and read and read, go 'Aha' on numerous occasions and t...

Re: Robert Sawyer interview

Wow ! Great interview - of particular interest to me, the Creative Process and Product : ND: I’d like to ask you a question about your creative process. Before you begin writing a novel, do you have a philosophical concept in mind that you want to address, or is the philosophy a byproduct of the sci...

Re: A Cyber-University

John, thanks for sharing that. I am really fascinated by the Suberian method and reasons for note-taking. Particularly notes as a part of continual philo enquiry : 1. Open to Revision 2. As Producer and Product of Philo mastery. 3. Keeping a Philo Journal as an outlet for thoughts; practice in artic...

Re: A Cyber-University

Mindmaps I've looked at - never really tried properly... Kinda didn't 'get it' :D or got it but it didn't 'take' !... Do you need a certain type of mind for mindmaps ? I would love to hear of how mindmaps are used to take notes when reading and then writing philosophy. Any examples ? Take a book, an...

Re: A Cyber-University

Are you almost finished or are you an eternal student ? Playing it by lug the noo.... Next year, a wee bit o' la musica and some gentle reading leading to Enlightenment :wink: :idea: Believe it or not, even after the hints and tips on A211, I'm still working on the best way to take notes when readi...

Re: A Cyber-University

Hi John I did A211 in 2008 - and only kept at it because of a fantastic tutor in Edinburgh and some growly encouragement from a Bear of Great Distinction. Last year, I almost died doing AA308 Philo of Mind - and swore to put philo behind me forever and ever.... All the best in your studies :D M.

Re: Music

' Lead Sister' When asked why she played the drums, Karen Carpenenter replied ' Why not ? ' Back then, ladies were usually seen as decorative lead singers ....I doubt if any female artist nowadays would be asked that question.... Here she is striking up the band, complete with drumsticks in hand : h...
