Philosophy 2

Meets: 2nd & 4th Tuesday of the Month

Time: 10:00 – 12:00

In our discussions of Philosophy we usually all follow a book with individual members introducing chapters in turn.  Over the last year we have been examining Applied Ethics based on books by Mel Thompson & Roy Jackson on Far & Middle Eastern Philosophy respectively.  We are now turning our attention to the Philosophy of Education based on a text by Nel Noddings who is a well-respected American Philosopher.  She has taught at all educational levels & since we have some teachers in our group we expect lively discussions.
