DQ 1) Both Plato and Aristotle believed that there is a world of true knowledge, the ultimate reality of the world that has been created perfectly by God (or the equivalent concept of God). What did each of the two philosophers propose as the route or method to obtaining that true knowledge? Given their theory about the search for true knowledge, what would be each philosopher’s view on the nature/nurture debate? Which of the two views is superior? Why?

DQ 2) At least as early as Alcmaeon (around 500 B.C.), the brain was identified as the “organ of thought.” However, subsequent thinkers continued to believe in the separation of the physical body (including the brain) and the mind (or soul). What were some of the most significant factors that might have prevented general acceptance of the neural basis for all thoughts? Why were these factors important?
