Musings of a New Delphian School Teacher Intern

In the Summer of 2011, I sought adventure. Little did I know how intense and exhilarating my summer adventure would turn out to be.

One philosophy that has always remained the same in my life:

“If you want to learn something new, seek out who has an excellent record of achieving the very thing you want to learn.”

After seeing the test results and college acceptance letters from a number of graduates of the prestigious Delphian School in Sheridan, Oregon, I felt this must be the right place. I applied and was accepted for a 7-week summer teaching internship.

Book Review – The Thinking Book

The subject of Reason is not one taught in modern schools. It died out on the curriculum back in Socrates days.

The almost unbearable course in Logic, sometimes found hidden under the Philosophy section of the college course list, was one of the most difficult and convoluted courses I had to sit through for the most obvious fact of there being no clear and agreed upon definition of “Logic” used throughout the ages, much less modern times.

With such an unpresumptuous book cover it is, by far, the simplest and best course I have ever come across to teach young adults the concept of reason and logic.
