3 hours per week
Year 7/8 Philosophy at the DECV provides students with an opportunity to be part of a community of inquirers, separated by distance, but not by purpose. Students will develop their skills of inquiry as they explore age-old philosophical issues. What is the soul? Dare to think! Was there a beginning to everything? What is time? What is right action? The group will also embrace any other philosophically rich questions that occur to class members.
While the great philosophers may, for inspiration, be referred to from time to time, the emphasis is on the students, who are the ‘great philosophers’ in this course.
Class activities will necessitate students having a minimum of two hours’ access to the internet per week. It is vital that an accurate frequently checked email address is clearly shown the student’s enrolment application.
