1. Analyze the tension in the existential account of curiosity by organizing a comparative evaluation of what Nietzsche and Heidegger say about curiosity. How does the very question of existence lead to such different perspectives on curiosity?
2. Analyze the cohesion in the pragmatist account of curiosity by organizing a comparative evaluation of what James and Dewey say about curiosity. How does the focus on “what works” lead to such complementary perspectives on curiosity?
3. Compare and contrast the existentialist and pragmatist accounts of curiosity.
