An Undergraduate Journal of Philosophy

Volume VII, 2007

Note from the Editors

Greetings Friends and Readers!

The students and faculty of the Philosophy Department at California State University, East Bay are pleased to present the 2007 edition of our under-graduate philosophy journal, Reflections.

Reflections includes original work from students studying philosophy at CSUEB, majors, minors, and non-majors alike. Our 2007 edition features a very diverse group of writings and art. Our editorial and contributing staff hopes that you enjoy it.

CSUEB students, please note the call for papers for the 2008 edition of Reflections that appears at the end of the volume.

If you like the articles in this journal, please consider joining us for meetings of the Philosophy Society, or take a Philosophy class just for fun. We could be reading your ideas in a future edition.

Please join us to think about weird, meaningful, and interesting things!
