Details: 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 some old guys thought many years ago! Taught by Texas A&M University faculty and graduate students, 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 question: • What is ethics? • What is friendship? • Do we have moral obligations to animals? • Are we free? • What is best form of government? 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!
