Dealing with administrivia.. in doing so, a conversation was had about a course I'm teaching.
The people who DON'T teach this course also seem not to know much about it, or philosophy in general.
It was their decision that Ethics isn't "writing intensive" -- btw, according to their lack of definition about this, neither are comp courses -- and thus doesn't need an English prereq...
Which means, I've wasted a whole weekend reading a shit-ton of crappy drafts for a course in which writing is NOT important.
It seems that I'm teaching the wrong course.
