  • Seminar Discussion Sessions: Week 6 of 8.
    • ​​​​​​​Science: Aristotle’s Organon (1-2pm ET).  We progress further this week, after making good progress the week previous, into the conditions and nature of science, this week attending to the varied degrees which Aristotle describes in a plurality of chapters from book I of the Posterior Analytics.
    • Semiotics: An Introduction (3-4pm ET).  How do signs shape our thinking?  In what manner does the vehicle affect the interpretant, and how does the interpretant regard the object?  How are we to classify the signs we use?  These are open-ended questions, to which Peirce gives us guidance but no final resolutions.
    • Thomistic Psychology: World and Passions (5-6pm ET).  Fear–what is it and what are its effects?  Today, I believe, our experience of fear is more diffuse, less sharp, but far more damning than in centuries past: for it causes us not to hide from things truly fearsome, indeed, but rather from the love whereby we would be ennobled in our humanity.
