Abstract: Aesthetics. Epistemology. Metaphysics. Just a few terms that University of Virginia philosophy professor Mitchell Green hopes become part of the lexicon of American high school students. To achieve this epic goal, Green recently received funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities [LINK TO] for a summer institute for high school teachers, which he developed and will sponsor in collaboration with U.Va.'s Center for Liberal Arts. "Epic Questions: Mind, Meaning and Morality," is part of a larger project that he has initiated, called The High-Phi Project.
