Please write thoughtful responses of approximately 250-300 words that address the topics presented in class. Postings should be substantive and reflect an understanding of ToK issues as well as use examples from personal experience to address topics. Opinions are fine, but should be backed up with evidence and justification. Occasionally, you will be asked to respond to other's posts.
