My favourite class when I was in school before was History Of Philosophy. It was so much FUN and so illuminating! And then I got onto higher classes…
This year I jumped right over my three year gap with no school and enrolled in a 300-level philosophy class on Modern (19th and 20th century) Philosophy. This is a very different kettle of fish than my last class. Let’s just say I may be in over my head. However, even when I’m about to go crazy and weep in the middle of class I’m learning TONS. I think I can start to pick apart why our culture behaves the way it does. SUCCESS?!?!?
