7th Grade Philosophy

Who are you? What is justice? What makes a civilization glorious?

These are a few of the essential questions that students will explore in 7th grade Philosophy at the Classical Magnet School. In this course, students learn about the development of western philosophy in ancient Greece and Rome. After studying history and culture, students explore the similarities between the early scientists and natural philosophers, and contrast this way of thinking with early religion. Then students trace the gradual development of philosophy in the ancient western world. By reading and discussing the philosophies of Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, and Marcus Aurelius, students will gain a better understanding of the foundations of western civilization. They actively engage in a variety of learning activities, such as analyzing primary sources, participating in Paideia seminars, and designing Paideia projects. In addition, this course is designed to encourage students to formulate a better sense of themselves and their communities.
