Report Topics by Group

Instructions:Briefly but substantially discuss the major thinkers assigned per historical period.  Be able to present their unifying historical thread.  In other words, i do not wish to hear independent discussions of these thinkers’ major contributions to Philosophy of Man. An easy reference for these discussions is Bertrand Russell’s Problems of Philosophy and the many volumes of Fredric Coppleston’s History of Philosophy.  (I can be available for consultation before each group’s presentation)
