Prosser, WA (PRWEB) August 09, 2013
Red Comet’s new online elective course “Philosophy: The Big Picture” takes students on an exciting adventure that covers more than 2500 years. Students study some very strange characters; for example, students read about a man who hung out on street corners, barefoot and dirty, pestering everyone he met with questions. They learn about another man who climbed inside a stove to evaluate whether he existed or not. Despite their odd behavior, these and other philosophers of the Western world are amongst the most brilliant and influential thinkers of all time. Students see for themselves where many of the fundamental ideas of Western civilization came from. After completing this course, students get a better understanding of themselves and the world around them, from atoms to outer space and everything in between.
