Novel Ways to Teach Philosophical Concepts
Arnold Wilson, Editor
This collection contains over thirty creative efforts by philosophy educators to illustrate, enliven, make real for their students different ideas and concepts of philosophy. Orignially published in 1988, these essays will be of continuing use and inspiration to all teachers of philosophy and related disciplines. Exploring past efforts to reach students in new ways - from simple crossword puzzles that help students remember philosophy vocabulary to complex simulation games illustrating abstract philosophical ideas - can help teachers understand what has worked in the classroom and why, and inspire genuinely new instructional approaches. The collection includes orignal essays, as well as work previously published in Informal Logic, Metaphilosophy, and Teaching Philosophy. Contributors include Daniel Dombrowski, Eugene Hargrove, John Immerwahr, Janice Moulton, Debra Nails, and Wesley Salmon.
