Philosophy Class


This class is centered on the "building blocks of existence". At one time science and philosophy were entwined but never fear, this class is only after the cerebral side of all things in existence. We will spend much time on the concepts that are the building blocks of our existence here in the US, and naturally there might be some comparison to how those things change around the world and over the past 4000 years. Critical thinking is the end result, which is the point.

Class Format:
Your homework will generally be to go out and seek philosophy for use in class.
Your classwork will generally center on speaking about philosophy in a multitude of ways.
Your projects will all involve communicating ideas, sharing new concepts and even debating the merits of seemingly endless topics.
