The final reading in Maimonides made me change the journal. The one I talked about is something we'll do in class, but I don't think it will be as interesting to you as some of the practical consequences of Maimonides's view described in the final reading (pp. 184-202).

What might be our assumption about humans that makes us see things differently?...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
