Intro to Utilitarianism (PowerPoint)

(0)
This 28-slide PowerPoint presentation is professionally designed to engage students, create lively discussions, and provide a succinct summary of Utilitarianism. While Jeremy Bentham was the first to present Utilitarianism in a somewhat systematic fashion, the most articulate expression of theory was by 19th century philosopher John Stuart Mill. One of the strengths of this presentation is that several of the most important statements by Mill are directly quoted. The following topics are addressed: Normative ethics Brief summary of Virtue ethics Brief summary of Deontological ethics Quotes by Mill The Greatest Happiness Principle Mill’s definition of happiness Mill’s response to his critics that claimed his theory was a philosophy for swine The difference between Act and Rule Utilitarianism The famous Trolley Carts scenarios (with images)

Descartes & Rationalism (PowerPoint)

(0)
This 43-slide PowerPoint is what I use when teaching Intro to Philosophy or Philosophy of Human Nature at the university. It is extremely detailed, includes multiple quotes from the Discourse and Meditations, and presents not just the Cogito, but why in fact this was such a significant statement in the history of Western Philosophy. It was, for Descartes, his fundamental building block (certainty; foundationalism) in erecting his edifice of knowledge.

Introduction to Ethics (PowerPoint)

(0)
This 23-slide PowerPoint presentation is taken from the one that I used in my university classroom. It is organized in a manner that helps the student understand the place of ethics within the much broader discipline of philosophy. Another advantage of this presentation is that is arranged in a systematic, organized fashion so that the student can clearly understand the sub-branches of ethics itself. Topics covered include the following: Major branches of philosophy, three divisions in ethics, three major normative theories (Virtue ethics, Utilitarianism, Deontological ethics), and the trolley cart scenarios.

Stoicism - Epictetus (PowerPoint with Reading Material)
condreybjcondreybj

Stoicism - Epictetus (PowerPoint with Reading Material)

(0)
This 21-slide PowerPoint presentation has been used in a university classroom and has been designed to introduce students to Stoicism as one of the three main schools of Hellenistic philosophy along with Epicureanism and Cynicism. This particular presentation not only introduces Stoicism as a way of life (not focusing as much on logic and nature), but it does so through the particular writings of Epictetus (another presentation is forthcoming that will introduce students to the Meditations by Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius, another Stoic philosopher). This presentation has been created with the following in mind: Aesthetic appeal Being informative while still having a streamlined appearance Includes many original quotes Makes a connection with Proverbs and Buddhism Reading for this presentation: The Enchiridion by Epictetus
Epicureanism - Philosophy of Pleasure (PowerPoint w/ Readings)
condreybjcondreybj

Epicureanism - Philosophy of Pleasure (PowerPoint w/ Readings)

(0)
This 27-slide presentation has been carefully crafted with the teacher and student in mind. On a few slides, there is a one-sentence note that will help teachers know what point needs to be made. Also, slides have been designed to be aesthetically rich, informative, but still streamlined. I never want the teacher or student to feel overwhelmed with text. That being said, one of the strengths of this presentation is that quotes are taken from two online sources that both students and teachers can access: Principle Doctrines by Epicurus Letter to Menoeceus Essentially, Epicureanism is one of the two main schools of thought (philosophy) during the Hellenistic period of Ancient Greece. The other is Stoicism. Epicureanism is a philosophy of life that is hedonistic, yet this focus on pleasure is not what most people in our contemporary society would imagine. Epicurus’s treatment of pleasure is much richer and nuanced than what many would think.
The Sermon on the Mount - Jesus (PowerPoint)
condreybjcondreybj

The Sermon on the Mount - Jesus (PowerPoint)

(0)
This 29-slide PowerPoint presentation on The Sermon on the Mount (Matthew, chapters 5-7) was designed and used in a University classroom. The course name was Ethics and the Good Life, and because the University was not affiliated with Christianity, the ethics of the Sermon is stressed rather than the sermon’s soteriological (i.e., related to salvation) themes, etc. For this reason, terms like “human flourishing” and “self-actualization” are used sporadically in an effort to present the moral teachings of Jesus. That being said, I did not shy away from pointing out what Luther and many Protestants believe: that the sermon is meant to show, like the Law for Paul, that we all fall short of God’s glory (cf. Romans 3:23) and therefore are in need of salvation. It is important to note that not every passage is covered. This would result in too long of a presentation, and my goal was to create a presentation that would take approximately 1-1.5 hours to teach and would first and foremost present the moral teachings of Jesus in this Sermon while only briefly touching on ideas and themes that are more overtly religious. The bottom line is that you can do with this what you want. The PowerPoint is well-designed, informative, includes Bible passages from the NIV, and uses Craig Blomberg’s commentary on the Gospel of Matthew for exposition of certain passages.

Plato: Allegory of the Cave (PowerPoint)

(0)
This professional, 26-slide PowerPoint presentation is intuitively designed with the teacher in mind. Plato’s metaphysics and epistemology are presented in a clear, logical manner using both the Allegory of the Cave and the Divided Line metaphor. Several imagines are utilized in an effort to help students connect the dots. Having taught this subject myself in university classrooms, this PowerPoint is ready to go. Easy to modify to fit your own needs. The following topics are covered in detail: Plato’s bio World of Appearance World of Forms The Divided Line in relation to the Allegory of the Cave Dualism Participation Copies Degrees of reality Degrees of knowledge Enlightenment through education The Philosopher-King Bondage of ignorance
