Introduction to Philosophy, public student presentations

On Tuesday May 12, from 6:00 - 9:00PM, in Room LL7 at CCV, students from the spring 2009 semester Introduction to Philosophy class taught by CCV Burlington faculty member Bill Rath will publicly present their final projects.

Their presentations will reflect subjects and activities of particular interest to students which in some way represent their philosophical beliefs and commitments. Topics include a history of the African American “Buffalo Soldiers” who were stationed at Fort Ethan Allen; a portrait of the developmental lives of children in a preschool program; a documentary-in- progress about homeless people in Burlington; a stand-up look at philosophy (maybe) and humor; and some audience participation yoga exercises (very basic) reflecting Plato’s and Aristotle’s emphasis on the physical side of philosophy.

We invite all CCV students and faculty to attend this event, and hope to stimulate an audience-wide philosophical chat following the presentations.
