Feltre School



Introduction to Philosophy


Introduction to Philosophy is a survey course that familiarizes new students or re-acquaints returning students with the history, concepts, and terminology of the Western philosophical tradition. The course answers the basic questions:  What is philosophy? How did it develop? What does it mean for us and our world today? The course examines Philosophy’s origins and meanings as expressed through the ages, from the pre-Socratics, Thales, Pythagoras, and Heraclitus, through Socrates, Plato , and Aristotle, and into the modern age. 

The class meets weekly for seven-weeks to attend lecture and discuss the readings with a particular eye to questions of how these enduring ideas might find expression in our everyday lives.
