2016/10/04 A Presentation

Today is the first day of the semester when I gave a presentation. It was about the relationship between cognition and emotion. I introduced the debate between Zajonc and Lazarus about whether emotion can be produced without cognition or not.

After the presentation, there followed a discussion time. There were about 15 students present, but only three of them took part in it. The rest of them might have found my presentation dull.

Tomorrow there is a class in which the students are required to try to participate in English discussion on philosophy. I think I might have difficulty speaking with strange foreigners about something confusing.
