Philosophical discussion includes argumentation which means logical reasoning of justifications for your position on a topic. It does not mean hateful language or anger toward other students or the professor. If you arrive to class late, please shut the door quietly and sit in the closest seat. Do not walk in front of the professor when she is lecturing; please walk behind if you can. If your late arrival does interrupt the class, please be polite.
