Prior to completing this week’s reflection essay, I will ask that you read the lecture titled “Non-Western Philosophy” that I uploaded onto the Additional Materials section of our Blackboard course.
The lecture in question is titled “Non-Western Philosophy.”
I’d like you to reflect specifically on the four noble truths.
My general question is whether, from your life experience thus far, you find the first three noble truths to be true.
If you do find them to be true, please provide concrete examples.
If you do not agree with an aspect of one of the truths, please be specific in producing a counter-example.
Please take time to really think through this question.
The goal here is not to come up with knee-jerk response, but rather, to engage in philosophical reflection.
Your response to this question should be no less than 15 sentences in length.
