Philosophy | Guerin Catholic High School


Grades 11, 12
1 credit

To allow students to grapple with the greatest thinkers of all times on classic themes like how we gain knowledge, freedom, politics, justice, beauty, ethics, the existence of God, and religion, all through the lense of how these ideas affect our understanding of the human person. We will discover the logic and validity of Catholic Anthropology, learning how to analyse and evaluate arguments against it and how to respond. Ideas never remain as just ideas. They always become embodied in culture and personal lifestyles. Students will learn to think critically about the ideas that have shaped our current society as well as their own lives. In doing so, they will be able to rethink their own perspectives while being able to better understand the perspectives of others, all in hopes that they might become the thinkers that shape the world of tomorrow.
