from the agenda for Wed/Thurs Nov 7/8:

GIVEN THURSDAY’S HISTORY FIELD TRIP, B BLOCK WROTE THIS REPLY IN WEDNESDAY’S CLASS.  F BLOCK WILL WRITE IT FOR HOMEWORK.

First reply to the following questions by leaving a comment of five to seven sentences.  Compose your reply as a single, coherent paragraph, rather than as a list of answers.  In other words, synthesize your various answers into a coherent whole. Proofread your response, before publishing it.  Make every reasonable effort to act independently; eschew glances at your neighbor’s response.  Be your own person, your own thinker. [Your responses will not appear, until everyone has posted one.]

Questions: What is reason?  What does it mean to be rational?  What causes people to be other than rational?  Can you imagine circumstances in which a person would be wise not to be guided entirely by reason?
