The Examined Life Integrating Philosophy into Secondary Education

A weeklong philosophy workshop for twenty high school teachers focusing on the examined life and its value.

The proposed workshop will bring together twenty high school teachers from Northwest Wisconsin to enhance their understanding of philosophy and their ability to address philosophical issues in their courses as these relate to the Wisconsin Model Academic Standards. The workshop will be organized around the questions of what it means to live the examined life and whether the examined life should be lived. Although these are questions in ethics, the investigation of these questions also raises issues in other areas of philosophy such as political philosophy, metaphysics, epistemology and philosophy of science. The study of the workshop theme and the various areas of philosophy will take place during a one week period and during two, one-day follow up sessions.
