Need help? We are here


One of the things we ‘do’ in philosophy is evaluate others’ views, others’ opinions. So, since we will be doing much of that in this course and in these discussion forums, we should discuss our opinions about opinions. Here are two questions to get us started:

  • Are all opinions of equal value?  In other words, is the statement, “All opinions are of equal value” true or false? Your response must include reasons for your position as well as an example that helps illustrate it (e.g. an example of two opinions and your explanation of why they are or are not equal in value).
  • Should we respect every opinion? Why? or Why not? (by respect is meant ‘admire,’ esteem,’ ‘hold in high regard’) Your response must include reasons for your position and an example that helps illustrate it.
