Philosophy (continues) Across the Ages

Kirsten Jacobson, chair of the University of Maine Department of Philosophy, and Orono High School English teacher Jim Bulteel lead a virtual humanities collaboration called Philosophy Across the Ages at Orono High School. Philosophy Across the Ages connects UMaine undergraduate and Orono High students through regular seminar-style discussions of philosophical texts from ancient to contemporary times. The program, offered at the high school since 2009, often leads to Orono High School students taking UMaine philosophy courses in their senior years.
