This post has two parts:
Part 1: Each email that I (DR) have sent to the class so far has a section called “Here are some other issues to think about”. Pick ONE of these issues (from either email) and write about a paragraph in response.
Part 2: Drawing on the Principe reading, formulate a single question for us to discuss in section on Tues. Your question can be related to what you posted in Part 1, but it doesn’t have to be. You might, for example, expand on a question from your !/? reaction to the Thompson lecture. Or you could ask about something you found puzzling or controversial in the reading. Or you might ask a question that connects Principe with Unit 1, thereby contributing to the project of “synthesis” characteristic of the humanities.
