Waynflete Philosophy through a Student’s Eyes

Below is a link to an essay written by Gemma Laurence ’15 last spring for her Philosophy class with Ben Mini.  In that class, among other topics, students studied moral systems.  For a final project, Ben asked them to apply what they had learned in class about moral systems to their experiences at Waynflete.

Gemma’s essay is her response to that assignment.  It both exemplifies the independent thinking expected in Waynflete’s upper level electives and expresses a student perspective on a philosophy that lies at the heart of the Waynflete experience.
