In the 12th grade, we explore two general questions: What is a human being? What can a human being know? We go over the ideas of such thinkers as Montaigne, Shakespeare, Descartes, Hume, Marx, Darwin, Stendhal, Nietzsche, Freud, Sartre, Vonnegut, Ravitch, Foucault, Rorty, E.O. Wilson, Rousseau, Wordsworth, and Nussbaum, but we haven’t reached any definitive answers and expect students to take an eclectic approach and come up with their own.
