I look forward to talking to each of you about our scientific reasoning course. You are warmly encouraged to stop by my office to discuss classroom lectures, papers, ideas, or problems. If the stated office hours do not fit your schedule, other times can be arranged. Online office hours are from 8:00 to 9:00 PM on the evening prior to tests via Philosophy Chat at http://philosophy.lander.edu/chat/.
If you have a personal question, concern, or problem, email your instructor at the first opportunity. If you have questions about class procedures (class policies, homework problems, class requirements, grading, assignments, or other housekeeping matters), post online to the mwforum Scientific Reasoning Message Board. Also if you have questions about class content (philosophical concepts, conceptual questions, or understanding the subject-matter of philosophy), post online to the mwforum Scientific Reasoning Message Board. Messages from your instructor concerning changes in class policies, procedures, or scheduling will be sent via email to the srhelp Discussion List. If we can observe these protocols, all persons in the class will have access to the same information concerning class procedures and class content. If you forget to observe the email protocol, I will request in the interest of fairness to other members of the class that you submit your question to the appropriate list or board so that information can be available to all.
A small Logic Lab in LC M33 consisting of three networked computers is open to all philosophy students during office hours stated above. Students are encouraged to stop by the Lab to set up email accounts, practice with online quizzes and tests, check lecture notes, check the srhelp discussion list, read the mwforum Message Boards, or research topics in scientific reasoning on the Internet.
General Education Core Requirements
Note especially: Although Phil. 203 fulfills the General Education Core Curriculum Requirement for Logical and Analytical Thought, this course does not fulfill the requirement for the Humanities requirement. If you are seeking to fulfill the Humanities requirement by registering for a philosophy course, you need to enroll in Philosophy 102: Introduction to Philosophical Inquiry.
