Underlining the importance of philosophy courses at cégeps: Opinion


In a recent opinion article for Le Journal de Montréal, Joseph Facal argues in favour of literature and philosophy courses at cégeps. Facal underlines that philosophy courses are especially under threat at cégeps, with many of the classes begetting high failure rates and unfavourable reactions from students who consider philosophy training “boring” and irrelevant to their career aspirations. However, the author asserts that philosophy courses are essential to help students better understand themselves and the times they live in. Facal concludes that these skills are needed in an increasingly fragmented world, as they help students to see what all humans have in common.
