Welcome to the blog that will be a forum for our study of Philosophy 12. While the class will meet daily during the fall semester of 2011-2012 (September – January), this incarnation of Philosophy 12 will also function as an Open Online course serving the needs and interests of non-credit participants operating at a distance.
- Philosophy 12 presents learners with a unique opportunity to participate in a developmental course serving the needs of both face-to-face, for credit learners, as well as open online participants.
- This conceptual and thematic course will introduce learners to philosophical thought and theory throughout history.
- Participants will develop their imaginative, critical, analytical, and problem-solving skills through oral and written discussions and presentations. Guided practice in analytical reading and writing of well-argued philosophical prose will help students to articulate, examine, and reflect on their own and others’ ideas.
- As a university preparatory course, it will be conducted as a seminar that requires a significant amount of reading and research.
