4 Essay about 4 chapter

Chapter 1 – What does this have to do with me?

 In the process of doing so, spend a solid couple of paragraphs discussing how you think philosophy relates to aspects of your personal or professional life (current or future). Feel free to bring up philosophical discussions you have had with others and/or explain how you might use the concepts we will look at in your career.
Please use specific references to the ideas and concepts in the text.  

Your initial post should be at least 2-3 solid paragraphs (10-15 sentences). Quoted material is fine, as long as you explain what you quoted in your own words following the quotation.  However, quoted material does not count toward the required number of paragraphs or sentences – only your words do.  Paraphrasing is actually preferred – if you are not familiar, Google how to do it.

Chapter 2: Is there an enduring self?

After reading the second chapter’s required readings, please use the information from the text, the facts listed below, and your own intuition to argue for or against the notion of “an enduring self”. Or, in other words, is there something that makes you, you – throughout your life? And, if so, what is it? Or, is the notion of an enduring self just an antiquated one?  Either way you choose to argue, please reference information from the text in supporting your argument.

Some added facts to think about before you start
1) Every 7-10 years we are alive, we essentially become new people.  All of our cells have been replaced.  Yes, even all our brain cells.
2) Apart from certain personality tendencies, we actually have very little in common with “ourselves” over long periods of time.  A human being at age 3, for instance, has very little in common with themselves at age 45, and that person very little with themselves at age 90.  Obviously, two identical twins share much more in common than a single person does with themselves over long time spans.
3) Brain injuries routinely shed light on how personalities can change very drastically in a instant.  A person can go from passive to aggressive, introverted to extroverted, etc.

Chapter 3:  Do human beings have free will?

Do human beings have free will? 
If so, using the information you have read explain how.  If not, using the information you have read, explain why not.
Finally, explain how your own worldview (outlook on your life) would shift if you changed your mind regarding the subject.
Your initial post should be at least 3 solid paragraphs (at least one per question part).  Remember to reference material from the text (properly) to support your post  – e.g. “as Hume said in the text concerning _____, The case is that ____ is true”

Chapter4: Do good and evil exist?

Do “good” and “evil” exist, or are they simply made up terms used to put a label on things we “approve of” and “disapprove of”?.  Either way you choose to argue, make sure you support your argument from the material in the text (or outside scholarly resources)
Your initial post should be at least 3 solid paragraphs (at least one per question part).  Remember to reference material from the text (properly) to support your post  – e.g. “as Hume said in the text concerning _____, The case is that ____ is true”
