Week 6 Assignment

Dialogue


One of the great Jewish philosophers, Martin Buber, famous for

his book, I and Thou, speaks of the concept of dialogue as the very foundation of what makes the world an acceptable place to live for all those involved in life. Buber believed that without an understanding of what it means to truly listen to another person and then respond to them with compassion and genuine concern, we are all like ships passing in the night, unable to connect to the heart of what makes us who we are: creatures created in the image of God.


Instructions

Construct a dialogue with a philosopher (Presocratics, Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, St. Thomas Aquinas, Rene, Descartes, John Locke, David Hume, Immanuel Kant, Karl Marx, John Stewart Mill, Friedrich Nietzsche, William James, Simone de Beauvoir). Have some fun with this one since much of what we read sounds a bit strange in light of modern language and thought. Make it current and interesting.


I'm having trouble with how to start it or what I would talk to the philosopher about.
