Sometimes I think I baffle my students

Today I asked my students if they believed in love. I was trying to make a point about Platonism and the concept of believing in the existence of something that doesn’t have an observable existence. But it’s kind of an odd question for your history teacher to ask you.

In my defense, I also asked them if there was such a thing as red.

I think my teaching may be a little abstract.
