For next class (Wednesday 2/8) please workshop your peer's Parmenides argument. This involves doing the following:

1. Symbolize your peer's argument. (Refer to the argument handbook if you're not sure how to do this.)

2. Determine whether your peer's argument is formally valid.

3. Determine whether you think Parmenides would accept the premises that your peer attributes to him.

4. On the basis of (1-3), give suggestions to your peer for improving his/her argument.

Suppose I have a statement like "There is no beginning." How do I symbolize that statement? Should I write "~B" or should I write "There is no B" or something else entirely?
