Prison Teaching

When I was a graduate student at Princeton, I co-designed and co-taught a few different college-level philosophy courses at local prisons in New Jersey through Princeton’s Prison Teaching Initiative. Teaching in prisons was one of most rewarding experiences of my academic life. It had an enormous influence on the way I teach, and also on the way I think about the value of philosophy for people who aren’t planning on pursuing an academic career. You can read more about teaching philosophy in prisons here.

Here are the syllabi my co-instructors and I designed for “Philosophy and the Good life“; “Reason and Passion in the Ancient World“; and “Philosophy of Inequality“.
