Philosophy for Life – an open course

As I begin to formally explore the concept of social learning, I thought I’d begin with a topic I’ve been meaning to do something with for ages. But like many projects, it has lingered on my hard drive, resurfacing into my consciousness from time to time, but never compelling me to action until now.  And in true social learning fashion, I will work on this course out loud. Please do feel free to share any links you think might be useful or add your thoughts in the comments.

I’m using Trello to develop the course, so if you want to follow along there, hit me up with your email and I’ll add you to the board.

The course will begin with ‘why we need values and morals’.

I’ll leave you with this quote from Paul Tillich:

Goodness without knowledge is weak; knowledge without goodness is dangerous.  We have to build a better man before we can build a better society.  All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good people do nothing.  Our purpose is not to make a living but a life – a worthy, well-rounded, useful life.  Morality is not a subject; it is a life put to the test in dozens of moments.
