I loved this seminar. I was able to think about the reasons why we try to act "good" and the rational thinking that's unique for us. I'm actually inspired to start reading more about philosophy because I am not taking any courses related to that.
As an aspiring journalist I found Dr. Phalen to be a true inspiration, as she encouraged me to stay true to my principles in my future professional life.
