Teaching Philosophy Today

Second Edition

Terrell Ward Bynum and Arnold Wilson, Editors

This volume is a completely reworked edition of papers that emerged from the First National Workshop-Conference on Teaching Philosophy, held at Union College in 1976. This event was a milestone in the so-called "philosophy teaching movement" that arose in the late 1960s and early 70's in response to the flood of "nontraditional" students entering American higher education -- students who, previously, would not have gone to college. Originally published in 1977, this new edition contains important work that remains relevant and helpful for philosophy teaching today.
