Theme: Philosophy: Experience, Reflection, Transformation
Along with works in feminist, critical race, disability, and queer theory, students will read historical and contemporary philosophical texts that explore recurring human concerns and investigate the ways in which experience informs philosophical reflection. In addition, writing assignments, visiting lecturers, and mentoring will help students learn that their own perspectives matter to philosophy.
The students had a valuable experience during the Institute's ninth year. Watch the video below to see what PIKSI means to them.
