1. “Of that about which we can say nothing, let us be silent” Ludwig Wittgenstein
“There are things “about which we can say nothing and before which we dare not keep

2. This course has introduced you to the interplay of three central concepts–God, self, and society–and how, in defining one of the concepts, the meaning of the others is necessarily affected. Given all that you’ve learned this semester, and drawing on the insights of the authors you’ve read, how would you systematically define the concepts? In your description, explain how your definitions of each of the three concepts influences how you define the other concepts (e.g., the strengths of your definitions, the potential weaknesses or problematic implications, etc.).Expectations
