Three-page Reflection: 3 pages (no title page or bibliography required)
Expectations: This written assignment is meant to ease you into the field of ancient philosophy by appealing to your own experience and understanding. Assessment will focus on your ability to express your experience eloquently and to show clearly how the readings from weeks 1-2 confirm or clash with your own intuitions on the topic of happiness. The prompt is as follows: How would you describe you own notion of happiness prior to this class and what experiences led you to this notion? How have the class readings so far affirmed or challenged your own thinking on the nature of human happiness (give specific instances from at least three texts studied)?
