Terrell Ward Bynum and Arnold Wilson, Editors
This volume republishes a selection of papers that emerged from the First National Workshop-Conference on Teaching Philosophy, held at Union College in 1976. The conference was an important event in the so-called "philosophy teaching movement" which arose in the late 1960s and early 1970s in response to a flood of "nontraditional" students entering American higher education -- students who, previously, would not have gone to college. Originally published by the Philosophy Documentation Center in 1977, these essays had a significant impact on that movement. This completely reworked edition contains important work that is still relevant and helpful for philosophy teaching today.
