This course came at a student request for something more advanced and challenging. So I developed this class is to get your young learner ready for college-level philosophy. Even if your learner is curious to know just a little, or eager to begin studying “real” college-level philosophy, this class is for them. There is something here for every student, no matter if this is their very first class in philosophy, or if they are already reading the great philosophers to get ready for...
I have a PhD in the Philosophy of Religion from McGill University. My comprehensive exams for my doctorate were on Nietzsche and Schopenhauer. My dissertation examined their influence on the philosopher Albert Schweitzer. My subsequent research continued this work by bringing all these philosophers into dialogue with Descartes, Hume, Kant, Hegel, Heidegger, Derrida, and Camus. This research was then published in a title from McGill-Queens University Press, and in a follow-up book with Fortress Academic Press. I have also taught several undergraduate and graduate courses in philosophy and ethics at university as well.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
