Back to School

January 19, 2012

I had my first day, back in class as a student, yesterday.  It has been almost fifteen years since I graduated with my M.P.S.  I am taking a philosophy course as a non-degree graduate student.  The class will be studying the works of Descartes.

Everyone in the class is younger than me, including the instructor. There are fifteen students in the class.  Only one of them is female.  I don’t think that any of them have seen their thirtieth birthday, most of them are younger than twenty-five.  Not that age matters, but, it does affect the dynamics.

It appears that the class will be primarily discussion oriented.  We will read, and discuss, the works of Descartes.  Yes, there are exams and some papers to write, but primarily, read and discuss.

I think that I am going to enjoy this class.
