Fall Feature: Philosophically Speaking

Philosophy is not about finding life’s answers. It’s about considering life’s questions.

This discussion-based class will explore some of philosophy’s “greatest hits”, weaving together the work of classic and modern philosophers with thought experiments and real-life examples. Discover Plato’s cave, Pascal’s wager, John Rawls’s veil of ignorance, and John Searle’s Chinese room. This practical philosophy class will encourage teens to think more deeply about the choices and experiences of their everyday lives.

Philosophically Speaking will be held at Compass on Wednesdays from 10:00 am – 10:55 am starting September 12. The class is targeted for teens in 9th-12th grade. Register for this class and others online.
