5 There is Grandeur in this View of Life Study Tip: About this time in the course I usually get someone who asks something like “Do we really have to know all the names.” The motivation comes from the observation that many students have made in many classes that you won’t actually be held responsible for knowing much of what you were assigned to read. But this class is different. This isn’t a standard textbook that someone else wrote. This puppy is mine, and I’ve already sifted out all the unnecessary material. Don’t play guessing games. If you’re betting that I won’t cover something on the exam, then you’re playing the academic equivalent of Russian roulette, but in this case most of the chambers are loaded! If a concept is fuzzy for you, please let me know and we’ll get it clarified. Thanks.
