The Department of Philosophy at Western Michigan hosts the Michigan Lyceum. The Michigan Lyceum promotes philosophy and critical thinking by offering a free week-long summer day camp to high school students. The program introduces participants to philosophy interactively by integrating activities, discussion, games, and lectures, presenting philosophical concepts often neglected in standard K-12 education. The Lyceum’s organizers believe philosophy is essential to a well-rounded education and that the intellectual habits cultivated by philosophical education are paramount to a civil society. We are also working to expand Lyceum offerings to area junior high and high school philosophy clubs and other K-12 units. Participation in the program is free, thanks to departmental support.
