Teaching Philosophy

The most successful philosophy courses are transformative; they change the way students see and navigate the world. In light of that, my primary goal in teaching introductory ethics courses, for example, isn't that students the leading moral theories or get exposed to contemporary debates in practical ethics. These things are worth doing, and I enjoy doing them, but the reason they’re worth doing, as I see it, is to help students think more critically about how to live.
