Philosophy (HS only) (hannah)

Note: This class is open to high school students only.

Do we have free will? Can machines think? What is consciousness? What is happiness? Should we fear death? Does ethics depend on God’s existence? What should we do when we think a law is immoral? 

In this class, we will seek to understand and answer these questions and more, which have plagued ancient and contemporary philosophers alike. We will explore the origins and basic tenets of philosophy. Topics include theory of knowledge, philosophy of religion, Greek philosophy, Chinese philosophy, ethics, skepticism, rationalism, idealism, truth, and more. 

This class will include critical analysis of texts, structured deliberation, and creative projects. You will practice forming an argument with reasoning, in writing and discussion.
