Disputatio and the Pursuit of Wisdom in the Humanities

A two-week summer seminar for school teachers exploring the disputatio, or disputed questions, as a tool for discussing the nature of wisdom.

We propose a two-week Summer Seminar for high school teachers exploring the disputatio, or disputed question, as a tool for engaging wisdom questions in the humanities. The first week focuses on understanding the various features of disputatio and the nature of wisdom questions. The project of the second week is to explore the potential of disputatio to aid the pursuit of wisdom in the humanities. Participants will engage a variety of literary and philosophical texts and develop a curricular application of disputatio suited to their individual teaching needs.
