What is the truth? In this class we will explore the philosophical and ethical dangers of (intentionally or unintentionally) passing on OR even simply believing false information about people.

Class experience

Beginner Level
Students will learn, through their participation, about the areas of philosophy known as "philosophy of language" as well as moral philosophy. They will also benefit from being able to engage in philosophical discussion, listen to different perspectives, gain insights from other points of view, and defend their own viewpoints. With that said, the expectations are very low-key and relaxed but still do tend to naturally accomplish these elevated goals. 
I taught philosophy classes at a university for over 16 years, which included classes in moral theory/ethics. A central part of my in-person ethics classes was to explore the different perspectives and examples people had when it came to the moral status of actions, behaviors, and situations. Philosophy should give "food for thought" to foster engaged conversations where each student can reach their own conclusions based on having listened to, considered, and learned from the diverse viewpoints, experiences, and perspectives of others.  
I do not plan to share any media, but this class will allow for the free exchange of ideas from the learners. Therefore, parents can decide if the open-discussion nature of the class is a good fit for their young learner(s). Of course, all discussions will always be moderated in a way to keep examples and views relevant, appropriate, and in line with Outschool's policies.
