The "Love of Wisdom" is prospering in our virtual club-rooms! "Our Harmony School of Excellence Philosophy Club seeks to foster philosophical discussion among interested scholars in an informal, student-friendly environment. It aims to provide scholars an outlet for discourse about philosophical questions that are important to them." said club sponsor Mr. Zapata.
Some of the topics they have discussed so far are (1) The origins and definition of philosophy, (2) Whether art should be censored and we observed this subject matter through the lens of Plato the Philosopher. (3) How one measures the value of human life using Hardin's LifeBoat Ethics philosophy. (4) They have also spoken about the case for conservatism and made a contrast with (5) socialistic government.
We thank not only our scholars for participating in this note worth club but also Mr. Zapata for without his encouragement, unique insights and dedication to our scholars this wonderful opportunity would not be available.
We thank you Mr. Zapata!
