My Students

We are the most diverse school in America according to US News and World Report. Our students represent a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds yet possess the same noble quality of mind that pushes them to find out more about the world. Unfortunately, we operate in a cash-strapped district (Philadelphia) that is plagued with funding issues. Our high-performing kids deserve a decent education with all the necessary supplies.

Donations to our school will enable our students to maintain the school's high academic standards and expose them to new and fascinating ideas about the world.

This philosophy course has been a mainstay at the school since 1836, and a donation to help fund the program will go along way to ensuring that our students are able to ask vital critical-thinking questions about the world.

My Project

Donations to this project will make a difference in our students' learning be enabling them to access key philosophical insights written by one of the most interesting philosophers of modern times: Friedrich Nietzsche.

The Genealogy of Morals will improve their lives for the better because analyzing philosophical texts encourages students to ask questions about our world in a critical and engaging way.

Our high school has produced some of the finest civic-minded students in America. Founded in 1836 - the second public high school outside of New England - our school has always had a philosophy class on the class roster. A donation to our school will help ensure that philosophy is alive and well in our high school. This book in particular will permit students to question the world in new and novel ways: they deserve a quality text translated by a prestigious scholar. This edition of the text also includes Ecce Homo, allowing students to understand how Nietzsche thought of himself at the end of his philosophical career.

Students who take this course marvel at their own interpretations of the text, and take great pleasure in applying Nietzsche's philosophy to popular culture and their own lives. In fact, quite a few of my philosophy students have taken to selecting philosophy as a college major, a move very much influenced by both Nietzsche as well as our philosophy class.
