This semester my philosophy students will explore ontology, logic, and ethics. It will be a busy semester! We will have between 3-5 meetings of the great minds. You will discuss questions posed to the forum by Socrates. Three questions are asked each meeting.
Select a philosopher for these enactments and become acquainted with the philosopher's main contributions to the philosophical project. Gather quotes and pertinent biographical information.You must remain in the roll of that philosopher during the forums, wearing the hat you select or design to represent that philosopher.
Your final paper for the semester will be about the philosopher you have portrayed in the forums.
Philosophers you may select for the Spring Semester include, but are not limited to:
Jacques Derrida (See also "Something Older")
Martin Heidegger (See also "A Closer Look at Martin Heidegger")
Immanuel Kant (See also "Modern Trends in Ethical Thought")
Niccoló Machiavelli (See also "Machiavelli Believed in Fortune")
Charles Sanders Peirce (See also "Pragmatism and American Education")
John B. Rawls
