Defense Against the Dark Arts (2 credits, 6:30-8:30 pm Thursdays)
Join political infighter, anti-crime mentor, and legendary Hogwarts adjunct professor Mr. Muhlestein, and learn to keep the walls of your mind defended against all attacks. Logic. Reason. Story. Principle. Understanding the examples of the past and the clashes of the present–these can keep your mind clear and calm, and let you fight back with grace and class.
Outline of Philosophy (2 credits, 4-6 pm Thursdays)
From ethics to epistemology and empiricism to rationalism, this philosophical survey course will take you from the Pre-Socratics up through postmodernism. Who was Socrates? How did we get from there to Kant and even Derrida and what can we learn from them? Understanding philosophy and how it has evolved will help you have a better grasp of the world today.
