Week 1

The first week of class was a great start to what I am sure will be an intellectually stimulating class.  I love the idea of putting away all technology in order to maximize discussion.  Discussion and argument are key concepts in the realms of philosophy and education, and the free interchange of ideas and perspectives is an integral part of being a well rounded educator and person.

I am really looking forward to seeing where the discussions and topics we cover in class will take us, as well as the intellectual challenge that a class like this offers.

  1. Hi Ethan,
    Your comments are thoughtful. I am hoping you will find time to address aspects of the Aristotle and Plato readings, your thoughts on "What is Teaching?", thoughts on the nature of philosophical thought and your life sentence. Also, use this blog as a way to start articulating your answers to the core questions of the class.
