Homework (due 1.11): What would Chinese Philosophers Do?

10 Jan

Students,

Please read the scenario below (you also wrote it down in class today). Once you have read the scenario, please answer the question: What advice do you think followers of the Buddha, Confucius and Laozi would give Alicia?

Your response for each philosopher should be at least 3 sentences long.

SCENARIO:

Alicia, a 13 year old girl, wants to go on a shopping expedition to the mall with her friends. Her parents are supportive of the trip but insist that either they or one of the other girls’ parents chaperone. Alicia feels that the presence of adults would prevent her and her friends from having fun. What advice do you think followers of the Buddha, Confucius and Laozi would give Alicia?
