2021 Utah Lyceum

A Philosophy Summer Camp for High-School Students

Theme: "Happiness and the Good Life." | Date: June 14-18 (Virtually on Zoom)

For the 2021 Utah Lyceum summer camp we provided students an overview of philosophy, reasoning, and argumentation through a discussion of the nature of happiness, a good life, and how those ideas fit together. Students from across the country joined us on Zoom to learn from SUU Professors Ellefson and Phillips, and SUU philosophy students Amanda Clarke and Kimberly Knowlton. Together we introduced the core areas of philosophy including the theory of knowledge, metaphysics, ethics, political philosophy, and more. 

All participants received these books to help build their philosophical library:

Happy Lives, Good Lives 

Theories of Happiness
