Aggie Philosophy Camp for Teens will introduce students to some of Western philosophy’s most influential ideas and persistent questions. But you will learn so much more than what the ancient philosophers thought so many years ago! Taught by Texas A&M University faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates, the Philosophy for Teens camp offers students a transformative experience. Philosophy camp students will have the opportunity to discuss and reflect on these big ideas, learn and practice critical thinking, and improve logical and creative thinking. Just a few of the big questions we discussed last summer:
What is ethics?
What is friendship?
Do we have moral obligations to animals?
Are we free?
What is makes a government just?
What is art?
and yes, even the old stand-by…
What is the meaning of life?
If you ever found yourself wondering about these or similar questions, this camp is for you!
At Philosophy Camp, students will work collaboratively with faculty, graduate student counselors, and, most importantly, with each other to think carefully about important philosophical ideas, that not only appear throughout history and but also in our world today. Expect to challenge yourself to understand better your own perspective and those of your peers. If you are interested in philosophy, or just want to know more about what philosophy is, this camp is the perfect place to start!
