Hello everybody. I'm Cazalius Lodra, but you can call me Caz. I'm going to be teaching a course of ancient philosophy, which will include interactive debates, essays,

I hope everybody signs up, and gets to learn something, and to teach me something as well. Ancient Philosophy is very interesting, when done in the right perspective. So, that's about it. Sign up in this thread. Feel free to ask me any questions about the course.
WONDERMENT ASSIGNMENT: I'm sure many of us have questions that deal with philosophy. I have encountered a debate thread which asks, "What is Life?" Many of us have such questions. A wonderment assignment is an assignment which asks that question, on paper, and through this course, answer it. The question(s) that you have should be written, and a report should be written about it, in about 900-1000 words, trying to either: 1) Answer the question, or 2) Analyse the teachings and improvise the question.
