Wrap your head around these 3 FAQs:
Metaphysics: How could the world, or life, or mind come around?
Ethics: How can we live the right way round?
Epistemology: How can we know our way around?
A brief round-up of philosophy ...
Round 1: Around 2500 years ago, around the Mediterranean, a few thinkers stopped fooling around using inherited myths about the 3 FAQs, opting instead for round assertions, looking around, and reasoning round and round.
Round 2: Their disputes made the rounds of Europe, which pushed them around to colonies.
Round 3: This destroyed or displaced the world's other practices and writings about the 3 FAQs,
but by weight being thrown around more than by ideas being shopped around.
To get around this, around our 80-minute clock:
We'll hold 3-FAQ round-robins all around Africa, Asia, Australasia, & America (beyond Euro-colonies).
And we'll see which rumi-nations run rings round which, and which make which better rounded.
Your appointed rounds:
Be around, get around to the readings, and act up in our theater (in the round).
Take two or three rounds of quizzes, and round out the term with a paper.
