7th Grade for Philosophical Friday

Posted: December 11, 2017 in Home

I am looking forward to seeing what you can do in a student led philosophical conversation. The following questions will help you to wrap your mind around the concept of evil.

Through the process of inquiry and philosophical discussion, your goal is to determine the nature of evil. Here are some questions to spur your thinking.

1). What types of evil are there?

2). Is evil necessary?

3). Does evil stem from good or vice versa?

4). Does evil exist outside of us? Does it exist only within us? Is it only a human concept?

5). Is evil a force, an entity?

6). What role does evil play in human affairs?

7). What conditions must be met to determine if something is evil or not? How do we understand evil?

Where does evil exist? Does it exist in those who commit certain acts? Does it exist in the acts themselves, or does it occur to the witnesses of such acts, during and after the fact?

Is evil more than an action? Can evil exist in thoughts? Is evil a thought in and of itself?

    Star Wars is such a classic battle of good and evil. Undoubtedly a modern epic and certainly something to draw from in Friday’s conversation.

    Yea evil is a force. The Dark Side of the force (star wars)😂😂😂
