Critical Thinking and Philosophy: Ongoing Weekly (13-18 Teens)
Teacher Nathan S. (MA)
A philosophy class focused on informative lectures, group discussion and engaged critical thinking.
Welcome to the new school year! I have updated my schedule. Each week I will present on a unique philosophical topic and then have the students discuss the topic of the week.

This class is taught in English.
MA and BA in philosophy. I have two years teaching ESL online, prior to working for Outschool. I also taught my own Introduction to Logic courses while in graduate school.
In my ongoing class I teach not just logic, but also history of philosophy and ethics. In my classes we will have open discussions about topics like death, the mind, and unethical acts like stealing and killing (for example, discussing the ethics of killing animals vs killing humans). We discuss these topics so that we can understand them better logically and so that we can understand many different perspectives that different people might have on each topic. I do not expect or demand that any student believe or agree with any particular view on these topics. Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns about topics discussed in class and I will make sure to adjust my class accordingly.
I have a BA and MA in philosophy, so I will use my own expertise to make informative lectures and class topics.
