Week 4--Empirical Non-Foundationalism/The Unsounded Ocean
This week we'll be exploring "empirical non-foundationalism" in two different genres. The first, fictional version is demonstrated by the "intellectual chowder" Ishmael is making of Moby-Dick. The other version takes the form of the academic essay Paul just published in Soundings. What are your thoughts about these approaches to understanding, either alone or in tandem, as you go fellow-traveling in the "unsounded ocean that is Life"?
P.S. (as fuel!) You'll find a link to today's prepared-for-but-inaccessible-in-class notes here; to info on The Bible as Graphic Novel, With a Samurai Stranger Called Christ here; and to the Bryn Mawr Now article on Publishing Students' Work on the World Wide Web here.
