      Young Philosophers: An Exploration of Virtue

      “Life has never been normal,” wrote C. S. Lewis in an address to students at the outset of World War II. If we are waiting for a better time to pursue truth, goodness, and beauty, we may never get started. In the Young Philosophers series, Gutenberg College opens its (virtual) doors to high-school-age participants for thoughtful online discussion of important ideas.

      Virtue is a central concept in ethics, or moral philosophy. In this session of Young Philosophers, we will explore the classical Greek notion of virtue as presented in Plato's dialogue Meno. We will also compare this notion of virtue with the Hebrew notion of wisdom as presented in 1 Kings.

      Leading this session of Young Philosophers will be Dr. Charley Dewberry. Charley is a tutor and the dean at Gutenberg College, a practicing scientist and stream ecologist, and the author of Saving Science: A Critique of Science and Its Role in Salmon Recovery (2004) and Intelligent Discourse: Exposing the Fallacious Standoff Between Evolution and Intelligent Design (2006). He has a M.A. in fisheries and wildlife and a Ph.D. in philosophy with an emphasis on philosophy of science.

      Cost: Payment required - $15 for high-school-age participants.
