Respond to one of the prompts below and be clear about which one you are referring to:

NOTE: YOUR RESPONSE TO ONE OF THE PROMPTS BELOW IS DUE ON WEDNESDAY BY 11:59PM. YOUR CRITICAL FEEDBACK TO TWO PEER RESPONSES IS DUE ON SUNDAY AT NOON. CANVAS ONLY SHOWS THE SECOND DEADLINE.

PROMPT #1: ZENO PROMPT. Zeno’s paradox reveals a mismatch between the way we think about the world and the way the world actually is. The challenge then becomes how to identify what precisely is wrong with our thinking. Motion is possible, of course, and a fast human runner can beat a tortoise in a race. The problem seems to have something to do with our conception of infinity. How would you solve Zeno’s problem? In your mind, is space continuous or discrete? Explain your answer.

PROMPT #1: A-Theory vs. B-THEORY. Consider this argument: “The subjective A-theory is inferior to the objective B-theory. For the subjective A-theory does not allow us to give a completely objective account of time descriptions. But the objective B-theory does allow us to give a subjective account of time descriptions.” Critically discuss this argument.
