Op-Ed: “Philosophy in Prison: Educating the Educator”

Click here to read my most recent opinion piece, which was generated out of a collectivist prison project that is described below. The other five pieces, written by inmates at Graterford Prison, will be published in the coming weeks. Click here to read them as they become available.

“Philosophy in Prison” is a series of posts generated for the APA Blog by Professor Gabriel Rockhill’s philosophy course, “Class, Race and Social Transformation,” which took place in the Spring semester of 2017 at Graterford Prison in Pennsylvania. The class was part of Villanova University’s prison program. The participants in the course developed their own topics and worked in groups to define the precise format and content of their contributions, which range from single-author pieces to dialogues and co-authored articles.  The following post, the first of six, introduces the idea behind the series.
