Most of you will not be in class on Wednesday. [To be clear... I will be there. Those who show up will get some extra credit of some sort.] Clearly NYU didn’t foresee this debacle of a schedule. Normally, this class time would have been the wrap-up for astrology. So, let’s make the best of it….and… have a great Thanksgiving.
Please comment on Oresme’s thoughts and/or any of the astrological readings and/or our guest speaker’s thoughts from Monday. Suggestions. Describe how much of astrology you find credible and how much you don’t. Where do you draw the line? Refer to our readings and speakers. Describe what you discovered in this unit on astrology and astro-harmonic stuff. Describe a way to verify astrololgy. What methods would you use to determine whether or not astrology has something to say about reality? Describe how astrology and religion could coexist peacefully. What does religion need to concede, and what does astrology need to concede? Go back to the Week 11a comments and attempt to answer a question or two from your or another student’s list of questions. Our guest speaker got to some of those questions, but not all of them.
