Hi again, everyone. I’ll be your friendly ventriloquist for today’s class. Just post a comment here and I’ll pass it on to Prof. Angle.
The scan to sign in doesn’t work
Don’t worry about it, Zoom lets us know you’ve turned up.
So we can just text our word to the number after we already typed tirani111?
I have a Greek number and it is not delivering probably because it is an international number. Is there any other way I can participate?
Yes, hopefully! Otherwise, sign in using the URL.

To my mind evil is worse, maybe bad has to do with actions and evil has to do with morality?
I personally think they’re both wrong, but I practically speaking Xunzi’s view aligns more with how I believe we should strive to be good people
The person is present and is closer to your day to day life and also while reading the book you might misinterpret something. Whereas when viewing the person you also see the outcomes of his/her actions which helps
Great point! (Texts are more liable to being misinterpreted.)
this might sound a bit silly but is this what they were doing in the series The Good place. Where they were trying to give people a second chance by designing place that would help them become better people?
I was thinking the same thing Tereza!
I’m only halfway through the show, but that might be true! The show is certainly influenced by various ethical theories and views about the good life. See here: https://qz.com/quartzy/1421632/the-philosophy-in-the-good-place-is-vetted-by-a-real-philosopher/
👆🏽Don’t click, though, until after class! 😁
Oh sorry if I spoiled anything 😬
Great! Thanks :)
If you voted for rigidity, feel free to share your thoughts on why.
Xunzi seems to believe there is always a correct, orderly way to act in every situation, which doesn’t seem accurate. Also rigid in the sense that class positions are extremely deterministic and inflexible
Is there a particular time we are supposed to submit the daily reflections by?
Yes, before the end of the day!
