    Instructor: Bryan Carr
    Philosophy is both the foundation and the peak of education, and young people are naturals at it if given the chance. In this introductory class, we will start with stories, games, and movie and video clips, as well as food, and then move on together to rediscover the biggest, most perplexing issues of all. Rather than be told answers, students will generate questions, by thinking together about science, ethics, art, and more. We will discover that thought is a great deal of fun, while developing critical thinking and listening carefully to each other. Because there is no end to puzzlement or to understanding, the class is never the same twice, and is appropriate for both first-time and returning students. Dialogue is guided by the instructor.
