184A: Philosophy for Children

Prerequisites: None
Fees (not including books): ~$25
Meeting Times: 9-11am, 1-4pm, MTWRF
Location: Asbury Hall 222

The highlight of this course will be teaching philosophy to elementary school students in the Greencastle area. We will do this by leading discussions based on popular children's books. Of course, one important question is whether children are capable of philosophical inquiry. This is an important issue and indeed one that we will investigate and discuss. However, our primary focus will be on facilitating philosophical discussion among the elementary school students themselves.
