Description

Come join us for an introduction to philosophical thought for high school students. We will meet some of Western Civilization's greatest thinkers and explore their ideas through the medium of popular Hollywood movies. From Plato to Augustine to Nietzsche, this week-long summer program will engage students in round-table discussions led by Rev. Dr. Jason Foster on the emergence and development of several major schools of philosophical thought. Along with these exchanges, we'll be grabbing some popcorn and watching these ideas come to life on the big screen in movies such as Smallfoot and The Dark Knight. So, please join us for a fun and informative introduction to some of history's biggest thoughts and thinkers.
