Open to high school and middle school students, this class involves tackling some of the big questions in life. Come explore the life of the mind and learn to love God with all of your mind in order to impact our culture for Christ. We’ll be looking at what philosophy is and why it’s important, wisdom, truth, logic, fallacies, reality, beauty, meaning, and much more! Each class will have practical applications, e.g. how to tell if a book / song / movie is “good”, using technology for transformation, becoming an agent of change in the arts & entertainment, business, education, family, government, media, and religion. This is not a homework-heavy class, but we will have a few reading assignments, writing assignments, creative projects, and classroom presentations throughout the year.A weekly email with what we did in class / homework assignment / what’s coming up will be sent to both students and parents.
