Writing is a skill, a creative activity. As such, it cannot be learned primarily by reading a textbook or listening to lectures. One learns to write by writing . . . and writing and writing and writing. Building on the skills acquired and lessons learned in Introduction to Writing, a prerequisite course, students write and analyze writing throughout the course. The focus is on “applied philosophical writing”—i.e., nonfiction writing that applies philosophical thinking to current events and cultural and political issues. This is a two-quarter course running from Q4 of the 2022-23 school year through Q1 of the 2023-24 school year.
July – December 2023
