+# Policy
+## Section synopsis
+The purposes of the discussion section are to
+1. clarify any parts of the course material which you aren't sure you
+ understood; and
+2. engage philosophically with the course material by talking about it
+ as a group.
+Although I have studied the authors we'll be reading before, I'm
+hoping that by discussing them with you I'll learn something new. So

+stupid questions!
+## E-mail
+I aim to respond to all e-mails within two working days. Please do
+not expect a response sooner than one working day, and do not expect
+to receive a reply on Saturday or Sunday. Please do not e-mail

+highly urgent.

+discussion sections.** There are no exceptions without my explicit

+[scientific evidence]:
+## The end of class
+**Don't** start to pack away your things until I have finished
+speaking. It's disrespectful of me and other students who are trying

+**Don't** expect me to answer either logistical or philosophical
+questions at the end of class. I have to move to another classroom at
+the end of the section and cannot be delayed. Instead, use e-mail or
+office hours.
+## Accessibility and Accommodations
+If you anticipate or experience physical or academic barriers based on
+disability, please let me know so that we can discuss options. If you
+have reasonable accommodations, please plan to meet with me by
+appointment or during office hours to discuss accommodations and how
+my course requirements and activities may impact your ability to fully
