Anticipating Spring Honors

I'll be offering two honors sections next semester: Philosophy of Music (300-level seminar; some familiarity with and, especially, lots of enthusiasm for philosophical analysis required) and an honors section of Art and Philosophy (100-level, but equally rigorous and challenging).

Student blogs, with some new requirements designed to improve inter-student communication and facilitate responsible, substantive blogging, will be one optional component of each seminar. In addition, all prospective honors students should take a close look at Matt Silliman's brief essay from T-12 Online, Volume 16.1 "What Makes Honors Students Honorable," where he offers a set of ideal (since never fully realized) intellectual virtues to which we all ought to aspire.
