The final is on Tuesday Dec 13, 11:30 - 2:30.
I'll have extra office hours next week--Thursday 12-2 and Friday 1-3.
Come review with me but first do your best to find and understand the material. I will give you feedback on what you've got and help you do better.
Are you ready for the final? (diagnosis)
- Setting up and assessing arguments--what are the key concepts? (Definitions are not arguments!)
- Soft determinism--all choices are determined (and the person couldn't do otherwise) but some are also free and responsible. They try to reconcile these seemingly conflicting things.
- How does Wolf try to reconcile? How about Frankfurt?
- Does a free will libertarian think every choice in The Manchurian Candidate is free? Which are the free ones? Why?
- Three versions of the Cosmological Argument...how are they alike? How are they different from the Teleological Argument?
- What is a theodicy? What are the main theodicies? (four)
- The Kantian astronaut--what is the "categorical imperative"? The Utilitarian astronaut. What ethical principle do they follow?
- We looked at four approaches to distributive justice (when a distribution of wealth is just). Which are "historical" and which are "end state" (using Nozick's terminology)?
- The Original Position--what is it, what's the point of it?
- Libertarianism (free will) and libertarianism (money)--two theories, unrelated!
