Selected Course Readings
The 18th-century French philosopher Diderot wrote that sight is the most superficial of all the senses; hearing, the most arrogant; smell the most voluptuous; the sense of taste the most fickle and superstitious; and the sense of touch the most profound and philosophical.
On two or three (double-spaced) typewritten pages, please relate "To See and Not See" (Virgil's story) either to the above quotation from Diderot and/or to something from your own history. In either case use specific examples from the story AND specific examples from your own experience.
Please email this to me, or hand it in at the beginning of next week's class.
