Today is the start of the 2018 Fall semester at Grand Rapids Community College. I've got a full schedule this semester. I signed up for eight credits spread across three classes, which works out to 4-nights a week. The saving grace to this schedule is that the Metallic and Non-Metallic Joining class, which is two of those nights, doesn't start until the middle of October. Tonight, it all starts with PL 201 - Introduction to Philosophy. Lady Ronn took this class earlier, in the Spring part of the Spring/Summer semester, and she enjoyed it quite a bit. I have a different instructor than she did, but I'm looking forward to it and it meets my Humanities elective. According to the catalog, this course includes a consideration of some basic problems of philosophy, philosophic, rationalistic and scientific knowledge, the mind and body, the nature of humanity and self-identity, and values in human conduct from the point of view of historical and contemporary schools of philosophy.
