Truth-Beauty-Goodness: Philosophy Units for Gifted Students (Middle and Secondary Grade Levels). Programs for Gifted Students.
This document, one in a series of nine units of study developed for middle and junior high school gifted students outlines an introduction to philosophy based on Mortimer Adler's conceptions. Adler simplified the study of logic into the study of truth, the study of aesthetics to that of beauty, and distilled the study of ethics to the study of goodness. The units focus on these simplified studies: truth, beauty, and goodness. Each of three units presents narrative information followed by suggested activities, topics and readings (including texts, fiction, and poetry). NCL)
