Philosophy is one of my loves. I am three hours short of having a degree in it from a Catholic university (no one does philosophy like a Thomist - seriously). Ever since I started homeschooling I have looked forward to being able to teach my kids philosophy. I consider it my reward for having to deal with things like phonics and addition. Now is when we get to finally learn the fun stuff! Having said that, I recently realized that I am faced with my perennial problem: I tend to want to teach everything. The conundrum is that my 12 year-old, although highly gifted, is not ready or willing to learn everything. And so I need some outside help. Fortunately, Home School Adventure Co. has provided this help most ably in the form of Philosophy Adventure. Even better, Philosophy Adventure seems designed especially for debaters! Color Therese happy!
What is Philosophy Adventure Composed Of?
Each chapter of Philosophy Adventure has seven distinct parts:
- The Philosopher's Story - the biographical component all about the philosopher's life
- Think, Write, Speak - relevant articles and assignments
- Geography - to help locate the philosopher locationally
- School of Thought - a discussion of the philosopher's, well, school of thought (the school with which he is associated)
- Contrast - comprised of the philosopher's writings (source material) and biblical worldview
