Topics include reality, order, knowledge, ethics, values, law, government, society, liberty, equality, art, and beauty among others. Emphasis is placed on reading from the original texts, learning how to analyze the logical structure of arguments, developing one’s own logical positions, and observing the connections among various thinkers with the goal of applying their ideas toward understanding the world today. All of this is accomplished within a Christian worldview.
