The activities described in this book give classroom teachers a potent antidote for today's lethargic students who 1) no longer practice clarity of thought, but rather emulate the emotional drivel of 'celebrities', 2) no longer seek multiple solutions and weigh the consequences of each, but rather seek easy answers, 3) no longer see ethics as a foundation in decision-making, but rather rely on "act now and see what happens" non-thinking. Philosophy education holds the answers to "values education." It teaches students to think critically, write logically and consider once again the virtues of the world's greatest thinkers. 30 Ways To Bring Philosophy Into Every Classroom is divided into two sections. The first contains the 30 ways to bring philosophy into the curriculum by philosophical theme, and includes the Socratic Seminar-a key methodology for any class and a useful tool for any school. Themes include: Truth-Theory of Knowledge Nature of Mankind Logic Beauty Philosophy of Life The second section is comprised of two appendices. The philosophers studied are: Aquinas, Aristotle, Augustine, Bacon, Bergson, Berkeley, Confucius, Croce, Descartes, Dewey, Epictitus, Epicurus, Han Fei Tzu, Hegel, Hobbes, Hsun Tzu, Hume, James, Jaspers, Kant, Kierkegaard, Locke, Machiavelli, Marx, Mencius, Mill, Montaigne, Montesquieu, Nietzsche, Plato, Reid, Ross, Rosseau, Santayana, Sartre, Schopenhauer, Spencer, Spinoza, Tzu, Lau and Chung, Tzu, Mo. "As our students are fully embarked on the information-superhighway, we must never allow them to forget the difference between knowledge and wisdom. ...amid the innovations of student teaching programs and the rhythmic swings of the pendulum, only one universal methodololgy remains intact which crosses all disciplines-philosophical inquiry." Jerry Chris is an NBC Crystal Apple winner and has been chosen both Orange County Creative Teacher of the year and California Teacher of the year for gifted students.
