"The Unexamined Life is Not Worth Living."


Perhaps the most famous philosopher in history, Socrates, claimed that the unexamined life is not worth living. In his view, philosophy meant to examine one's life, to determine the real truth of things, and to set out on the search for wisdom.

However, most young people never really receive training in philosophy. They grow up with some boundaries, some sense of normalcy in their homes, if they're lucky.

And then they go to college, where lots of new ideas (some good, some bad) are thrown at them.

So how do they make their way? How can they figure out what's up and what's down?

Through the study of philosophy and a knowledge of its history. And that is exactly what this course will help them with!

Philosophy Made Accessible

In The Art of Philosophy, I help guide young students (mature middle school-high school) through the great tradition of the history of philosophy.

Utilizing the Socrates' Children series from Peter Kreeft, this course includes a syllabus, reading schedule, comprehension questions, and sample answers along with optional quizzes and a final exam.

The goal is to give parents a way to introduce their students into the tradition of philosophy, to help sharpen their reasoning skills, and to open their hearts to the wonder of philosophy, to see it as the "love of wisdom."

Based on Personal Experience

I have already taught this course to my own middle school daughter, and I firmly believe young people can grasp the central and basic concepts in this course.
