Have students answer yes or no to the quiz questions (found below) on a sheet of paper. Next have a discussion around some of the discussion questions.
If students answer no to all questions than they would probably agree with the position in metaphysics that maintains that all real things are real in the same way. This position holds that something is either ‘real’ or it does not exist; there are no gradations of reality.
However, Aristotle argued that philosophers should take the time to argue how things are real that there are not just two categories of reality and nonreality, but it instead can be described in terms of levels, degrees, and forms.
