Objective

Students will practice thinking from the point of view of famous philosophers as they analyze characters and figures from history.

I'd recommend working through this lesson first, which introduces philosophy.

Steps

  1. Students begin with Socrates’ belief: ignorance was the root of problems and education was the key to solving ignorance.
  2. Next, they practice with Aristotles’ philosophy that problems come from unbalanced relationships
  3. Then they'll think like Descartes who believed that we should always begin by doubting things.
  4. Finally, students examine a problem using the lens of Confucius: children should respect and honor their parents and parents must care for and protect their children.
