Censorship

We will discuss whether or not the government should limit or ban profanity, racial insults, religious speech, political speech, and music.  Come prepared to argue and debate!

What is Truth?

We will look at different theories of truth from Socrates and Plato through the Middle Ages and in modern philosophical thought.  We will examine whether we are in a "post-truth" age and whether "fake news" contains some types of truth.

You will write a research paper analyzing truth philosophically or selecting a person or historical event and analyzing the perceptions and theories of truth present in that person's mind or in that event.
