2> " You must not tell anymore...what I am about to tell you," Kingston's mother tells her at the essay's opening. The rest of the essay, of course, is Kingston doing just that. What might her purpose be? Rhetorically( the writer's arrangement of the material), what is the effect of this strategy on the reader?
3> Think about the issue of individual identity and group identity: In this essay, how, and why, has group insisted upon the priorities of its own definitions of its members' "selves."

1> Russell references different mentalities: how might be the " practical mind" and the " scientific mind" view the study of philosophy? Why would they view it so?
2> "Russell mentions that philosophy is concerned with"... a critical examination of the grounds of our convictions, prejudices and beliefs." Examine philosophically one of your own beliefs: pushed to their extreme, what are its ultimate origins? From whence do they derive? Is a " belief" distinct from " knowledge"? Define a belief.
