       Leader: Lisa Melander  Facilitator: Don Melander

We will continue to respond to philosophers and the philosophies we encounter in our ongoing reading of Paul Kleinman’s book Philosophy 101: from Plato and Socrates to Ethics and Metaphysics, an essential Primer on the History of Thought and Tom Butler-Bowdon’s book 50 Philosophy Classics. We will encounter hedonism, Aquinas (again), “hard determinism,” Rousseau, Realism, Kant, Bentham & Berlin, Bohm and Butler, Chomsky and Cicero, Confucius and Cicero.  “Maybe”—a good philosophical word.

Lisa M. Melander holds a BA in philosophy from NEC, where she was a student of the late R. Peter Sylvester, and an M.Ed in education from Plymouth State U. She has served as a 4th, 5th, and 6th grade teacher in public and private schools. Lisa was a math coach mentoring teachers and developing math intervention/enrichment programs for several schools. In recent years, Lisa has designed and taught professional development courses for educators and worked with school districts on curriculum mapping. Currently, she works as a math tutor. Her teaching has been richly informed by her studies of philosophy and poetry.
