Philosophy is unlike any other subject you will take in school. For starters, there are no tests or quizzes. You won’t be asked to memorize any facts, though you will be expected to learn the principals that philosophers have suggested and think about how (and whether) they apply. Philosophy is analytical and critical, speculative and creative, exciting and mysterious. It is an activity more than a collection of knowledge. The goal is to combine the adventure of ideas with the rigorous analysis of them. It is serious, yet playful, thought. Throughout this course we will be studying the history of thought from ancient times through current philosophers. While we do this, we will be solving the mystery of Sophie’s existence along with her.

Have you ever thought about thinking? How do you think? Do you like puzzles? The puzzle of better thinking is called critical thinking. Critical thinking provides methods to understand arguments. What is a proper argument? (Hint: There aren’t any raised voices included!) Critical thinking provides insightful processes to analyze proper arguments, their premises and flaws. We will explore how to think more purposefully about what we hear, read or think. We will exercise these skills through classroom discussions, homework and an end of semester scenario exam.
