Jennifer Benson, The Problem of Tokenizing Radical Philosophy: Advice for Junior Academics and Allies
abstract | view |  rights & permissions
Teaching radical philosophy is tricky business, especially for junior academics. We are offered lower division introductory courses and service courses in applied philosophy, perhaps as adjunct or single-year contract employment. Our instructional objectives and teaching materials are often defined by others. We may only be able to include one or two readings in radical philosophy. Meanwhile, many students are defensive when our courses introduce criticism of the various forms of injustice generated by the social status quo. Offer students a single radical source in an otherwise conical reading list and one risks having the source dismissed as a tangent, bizarre and non-philosophical. In short, the readings are tokenized: instead of making the course more diverse and honoring the diversity in philosophy, the radical content is dismissed as strange and unimportant. Recognizing the material necessity of adjunct teaching and short contract teaching, and the importance of philosophy that aims at social justice, I offer best practices when one can only teach a few sources in radical philosophy.

Sam Hillier, Teaching Practical Logic: A Unifying Approach
abstract | view |  rights & permissions
I share my experiences teaching Practical Logic with a focus on good reasoning as eliminating alternative conclusions. This unites the various topics traditionally taught in such courses (deductive logic, inductive logic, causal reasoning, probability theory, fallacies, cognitive biases, the scientific method, and creativity) in a way that I have found to be extremely effective.
