Le Bac Philo

Le Monde proposes that you try your hand at the bac philo by answering one of the following 4 questions in 1500 characters or less:

- Peut-on avoir raison contre les faits ?
- La maîtrise de soi dépend-elle de la connaissance de soi ?
- Ressentir l'injustice m'apprend-il ce qui est juste ?
- L'art est-il moins nécessaire que la science ?

The first of these questions, "Can one be right contrary to the facts?" sounds to me as though it was suggested by one of DSK's lawyers.

You may be right, Art, about DSK and the first question, but how about the second? If only someone--his mother? Ann Sinclair?--had insisted he pass that one ... Now it's up to an American judge and jury to address the third.
