Philosophical issues or questions =
-          Often disagreements about them …
-          Conceptual analysis questions: what is this? Result in various principles.. to apply to cases
-          Science alone can’t answer these questions, but science can be relevant.. and often essential to answering the question.
-          Are answered by appealing to reasons and arguments … not entirely empirical or scientific, wil  often involve trying to analyze concepts…

Some people act in a certain ways  (?) .. .. what causes this? Human nature? Or their religion? 

For Friday, please read up to page 12. and write a list of philosophical issues from those pages.
