Class Description.

In this class, we will discuss what philosophy is, what its branches are, why it is important, how it affects your life, and how some good and some bad philosophical ideas affect your life and have affected our history.

We need a philosophic outlook to see the big picture of life, to give us guidance in action and thinking, and to direct us toward wisdom — or at least being a little wiser. 🙂 And wisdom is something every culture is always in more need of!

We’ll have a little more lecture in this class than in some others, naturally, because of the topic, but we will ask and answer questions, and consider where some of this stuff comes up in our experience and in our world. We will all be involved — the point is for you to learn, not for me to talk to my computer as you watch! 🙂

Learning Goals.
To know what philosophy is.
To know some examples of how bad philosophical ideas have harmed or compromised people.
To know why philosophy is important for everyone.
To think a little more broadly and wisely about our lives and our world.
To spark your curiosity in our world and in living as a human.
