 One of the major worries raised by the metaphysical position of “new materialism” is the implications for human freedom.  The video clip “Reading Minds” documents the approach of new materialism, according to which every mental event is really just a brain event.  Why, then, the concern about human freedom?  In short, if every mental event is just a brain event, and every brain event is caused by a preceding brain event, it seems that every mental event might be determined; leaving little room for free choice.  Indeed, findings of the sort depicted in the video clip “Neuroscience and Free will”—i.e., that scientists using brain imaging technology can predict our decisions, before we are even consciously aware of them!—only reinforce these worries.  Despite these considerations, however, many philosophers still contend that we possess free will, i.e., the capacity to choose freely among alternatives.

Do you believe that we posses free will as defined above?  On what basis (e.g., personal experience, theoretical considerations, etc.) do you hold your belief?  In your opinion, does the position of new materialism pose a genuine threat to your view?   Why or why not?

Question 

Directions – (1,000 words)

In this module, we have briefly discussed Aristotle’s assertion that tragedy’s primary purpose is to provide the audience with an experience of catharsis. According to his account, by witnessing the suffering of the tragic figure, the audience is purged of its feelings of pity and fear – as a result, they leave the dramatic performance feeling energized and also curiously relieved of anxiety. However, we have read one work of ancient Greek tragedy that seems to complicate this view. In Antigone, we are presented with a strong female protagonist whose commitment to a higher form of love and justice challenges the audience to gain any satisfaction from her suffering. Similarly, Susan Glaspell’s one-act play,Trifles, focuses on a conflict between competing notions of justice. Once again, it is the female protagonist and her companions who come into conflict with a male dominated society.

In this essay, you will consider whether or not it is appropriate to interpret this play as a work of tragic drama. After reading Part XIII of Aristotle’s Poetics, in which he offers his definition of an ideal tragedy, explain whether or not Trifles ought to be considered a tragedy.

  • * Does Mrs. Wright possess a tragic flaw, or like Antigone, is it possible that she does not fit easily into Aristotle’s definition of tragedy?
  • * Finally, does Glaspell’s play offer its audience an experience of catharsis?

Discussion Board 

The definition of Theme is often abridged to “the main idea.” However, Theme is more involved than that. Essentially, a theme is the author’s message–what the author wants to tell his/her readers about people in general. Themes can be supported by many of the story’s components, particularly the characters’ words, actions, and conflicts.

Initial response: One of the best ways to analyze theme is to look at it through children’s literature. For this response, think of a children’s story/book and analyze what the theme is. What is the author trying to tell children about life? About people?

  • What story are you choosing? If you can find a link to the book or story, please post this.
  • Provide a brief summary of the story (be careful about cutting and pasting. Please use your own words)
  • What do you feel is the theme of this story and WHY?
  • Be sure to include text examples with your response
  • End your response by asking a question of your classmates
