Sokrates, Antisthenes, Chrysippos, Epikouros represent the foundation of ideas discussed and debated in Philosophy Club.

Philosophy is the study of the basics of knowledge, reality, and existence. At Colonia High School Philosophy Club is a place where students can have the opportunity to express their thoughts and feelings without being told they are wrong. In 2012 the club was formed by a few students and the club is still continued today. Meetings take place every Monday after school in room 281 with Mr. Cuffe and all students are welcomed. Walking into the room seeing friends is a common occurrence and students feel the club is a welcoming environment.

Students use the club as a way to discuss with others their opinions and learn new ones. Anyone is allowed to speak up and start a discussion on a topic of interest. The variety of topics can lead to multiple opinions being said and students learning from others. “You learn about the world and opinions, and other’s perspectives,” Colonia High School junior Samantha Ferreira stated about the club.

One of the recent topics discussed during the club was the death penalty. Students got into a huge debate with many people expressing their views. The debate was a way of being able to communicate and listen and apply what others were saying to students knowledge.

Philosophy could help individuals all throughout their life with everyday situations and possible future careers. “It’s a way to express views and discuss topics of interest, no opinion is wrong,” Colonia High senior Devon Savage said. Join philosophy club if you want to be able to say your opinions without anyone saying that you are wrong.
