Overview: It is not unusual to hear people say, “My philosophy about that is . . . ” Generally, what they mean by “philosophy” is not the same as the meaning of “philosophy” in this course.

Based on your first two weeks in a beginning course in philosophy, how would you distinguish between what the phrase “My philosophy about that is . . . ” and the word “philosophy” mean? Review the overviews and resources from Modules One and Two as well as the course resources provided to assist you.
