- 2018 Graduation Program
Philosophy 12 is an academic course that prepares students for academic post-secondary studies. Students will complete a unit on methods of research, reasoning and argument, a unit on metaphysics and the nature of reality, a unit on ontological theories of being, a unit on epistemological theories about knowledge and truth, and a unit on the theories of morality and ethics. Students will write thought papers, engage in philosophical discussion in forums via key word posts, complete an essay on metaphysics; comparing and contrasting movies, and argue about the morality and ethics of their choice of politician or celebrity in a video essay. The course has no textbook, rather will use engaging videos to introduce topics, with readings alongside for further study.
