Phil. 13, Fall '06 2nd In-Class Exam (Wednesday, Nov. 15) The second in-class exam is structured in the same way as the first in-class exam. It will be composed of a few true/false and multiple-choice questions, and a few short-answer questions. You will not need bluebooks for the exam. The exam will cover all the material assigned between the first exam and the date of the second exam. In preparing for the exam, you should make sure that you are familiar with the terms and concepts listed below (though the test will not necessarily be limited to what is below). It is not necessary to have a complete definition ready for each of the terms on this list, but you should have a sense of the role that each concept plays in the discussion we have had so far. For example, you should be aware if a given term is associated with a particular author or theory, and whether it is associated in some important way with other concepts on this list.
