[T] Teaching philosophy as a humanistic discipline

Ombra mai fu (St Hugh's College)

Abstract. Inspired by Bernard Williams, I strive to teach ‘philosophy as a humanistic discipline’. In this essay I present my basic understanding of what teaching philosophy at the university level is and why it matters, by unpacking this slogan one word at a time, starting from the last.

Keywords. metaphilosophy, education, humanities, pedagogy, Bernard Williams.
