I currently major in philosophy and actively participate in the Parliamentary Debating Union and Dianoia: the undergraduate philosophy journal of BC.

R1882: Socrates: Making Fans and Foes Across Ancient Greece in BC Splash Fall 2019 (Nov. 03, 2019)
Socrates was both loved and hated in Greece. His arguments (and sass) against the so-called "wise" men of his day have become legendary, both for their historical and philosophical content. This class will examine Socrates' arguments, philosophy, and how they contributed to the story of his life (and untimely death).

R1813: Getting Out of the Cave: An Intro to Plato and his Arguments in Splash Spring 2019 (Apr. 07, 2019)
Philosophy is supposed to be for everyone, especially the youth, who even the greats like Socrates prioritized. Not only will you learn philosophic concepts to wow everyone, but you'll also learn new ideas and concepts to apply to your daily life. This course will introduce you to the ideas of Plato and Socrates through examining them crushing debate opponents and overall being sassy (like teenagers can be).
