Great suggestions for diversifying philosophy

from Eric Schwitzgebel.

(1.) Encourage very-small-group discussion in the middle of class. (This sounds boring, but humor me for a few hundred words, because really it’s magic!)….

(2.) Choose one non-white philosophical tradition to learn enough about so that you truly appreciate the range of positions and arguments in that tradition.

Head over to his blog for details, reasons behind these suggestions, and discussion!

  1. Just fyi, there is an exchange going on in the comments between Brian Leiter and Schwitzgebel following this post. It’s disheartening.
