LAW103 Foundations – The Method (“The Core”)
The completion of the scientific method is the foundation of the propertarian program.
But to understand that statement, we must first understand what we mean by science vs non-science, and that will take some doing.
Here is where we are going:
- Curt Doolittle is your instructor for this class.
- The class should take the equivalent of one college semester of work, meaning 45+ hours of content, and twice that in non-class time, of about 90 hours. and – Although in a typical one hour class, students attend 50 minutes, and work for 40-4. We will cover far more material than usual undergraduate classes and this work should be considered graduate level by comparison.
- Courses consist of sections. Sections consist of Lessons. Lessons consist of Topics. Assignments consist of questions that reinforce your understanding of one or more topics.
- We are not bound by the limits of traditional universities, so our course can vary in start and end date.
- I will refer you to Wiki, Stanford SEP, Amazon Reviews, Occasional Readings from our Digital Library of context.
- Assignments almost always consist of “research”, comparison, demonstration, argument, or opinion, not recitation or ‘quiz’.
- Bill Joslin and I (Curt) grade your work, and provide some support. (Bill is often a better ‘teacher’ than I am.)
- Grading Policy is on the FAQ page.
- Others may also contribute if we think it helpful.
- Please use your peers since it tends to accelerate both the you and the person assisting you.
