Class Experience

To think and learn without realising it, because you are having fun! By the end of the series the learner will have a really good grasp of all the main categories in Philosophy. They will have a great grounding in the how to make and analyse rational arguments and will have learnt an up to date version of most of the key issues that Philosophers debate in Modern Western Philosophy.
I have a PhD in Philosophy and have taught these classes may times - they are my favourites to teach and the students all love exploring these fun topics with me.
None. Although (on request) students can be directed to other external sources discussing this area of Philosophy - and also see sources below. I can also schedule a discussion group, or more advanced classes, if your child wants to explore this subject further.
None. Although (on request) the student can be sent a quick quiz on the lesson to test what they remember from the classes.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This course discusses whether we are in a simulation or otherwise being foolded about our existence. We also use the Trolley Problem as a cartoon illustration as a thought experiemnt for moral choices where the person has to choose whether to direct a tram to run over 1 person or 5 people. It is done in a light hearted very abstract manner but some more sensative students might find it distressing.
This course uses the following sources - which all have further references if needed:
