We will study Semantics and Pragmatics in this class, focussing on why and how one asks interesting questions, and why and how one recognizes satisfying answers to them; these are the bases of all education, the so-called Socratic method. This class is especially designed for incoming students who are worried they might be interested in too many subjects; the professor has spent 48 years in college being interested in practically everything, and strongly recommends curiosity.
