Theory of Knowledge, Philosophy & Religion (ToKPR)
Elective: Semester Offered: 1 & 2; Grade(s): 11-12
This advanced course introduces students to the theories of knowledge, philosophy, and religion that shape our world and worldviews. What we know, How we know, What we believe, and Why we believe – are deep rooted questions that shape who we are as individuals and create our culture and society. This class uses the novel Sophie’s World by Jostein Gaarder to engage students in the history of philosophy and The World’s Religions by Huston Smith to engage students in the religions of the world. This class is for those who are “philosophers” themselves that like to think, discuss, and enjoy reading.
