Different Perspectives Game One of the important things that the study of philosophy teaches us is how to examine the world from a variety of different perspectives.

Center for Philosophy for Children

When we read and study the writings of classic and contemporary philosophers, we are given new ways of looking at the world that broaden our own perspectives on reality. Consequently, it’s important to emphasize, with young people, the value of looking at the world through a variety of lenses. If we are to encourage them to examine their own views fairly and objectively, it will be good practice for them to take perspectives that are different than their own and think about them, too. This simple exercise encourages students to look at the world in ways they usually don’t. Break the class up into groups of three or four.

140 GREAT Philosophical Questions To Ask - IcebreakerIdeas

Philosophical questions have no set answers. In fact, asking a philosophical question frequently leads to more (seemingly unanswerable) questions.

Over the ages, there have been hundreds and thousands of discussions and debates about the dimension that is known to us as "time". Time virtually governs all our tasks and even the events of the world. Suicide. 1.


Characterizing Suicide Surprisingly, philosophical difficulties emerge when we attempt to characterize suicide precisely, and attempts to do so introduce intricate issues about how to describe and explain human action. In particular, identifying a set of necessary and sufficient conditions for suicide that fits well with our typical usage of the term is especially challenging. A further challenge is that due to suicide’s strong negative emotional or moral connotations, efforts to distinguish suicidal behavior from other behavior often clandestinely import moral judgments about the aims or moral worth of such behavior.

CHAPTER XV. HAVING now come to the end of our brief and very incomplete review of the problems of philosophy, it will be well to consider, in conclusion, what is the value of philosophy and why it ought to be studied.


It is the more necessary to consider this question, in view of the fact that many men, under the influence of science or of practical affairs, are inclined to doubt whether philosophy is anything better than innocent but useless trifling, hair-splitting distinctions, and controversies on matters concerning which knowledge is impossible. This view of philosophy appears to result, partly from a wrong conception of the ends of life, partly from a wrong conception of the kind of goods which philosophy strives to achieve. But further, if we are not to fail in our endeavour to determine the value of philosophy, we must first free our minds from the prejudices of what are wrongly called 'practical' men. Philosophy, like all other studies, aims primarily at knowledge. Role Playing Exercises. Role playing exercises are a specific kind of group work.

Role Playing Exercises

Here, instead of solving a problem, the students in the group take on pre-assigned roles and dramatize a problem as characters. The advantage to role playing exercises is that it allows students to engage with issues on a more immediate and emotional level. Role plays also help students overcome shyness, since it is sometimes easier for students to play an assigned role, rather than to defend their own individual ideas. Role play exercises also appeal to contemporary students who like to "learn by doing. " Principles for creating role play exercises: Clearly define the roles that students are to play, and what the various goals of the participants should be Form groups of appropriate size. Examples of role play exercises: One of the most fertile areas for role-play exercises is social contract theory.
