I am teaching high school philosphy this year for the first time. I am wading through it.
I thought it might be good to delve into the philosophies through which we live our lives. A ten minute internet search did not help me.
What would you say are the great philosophical ideals through which western culture makes decisions about our lives?
We might say that Nihilism would be number one but sprinkled here and there must be a lot of ideas that we draw on everyday.
It might be nice to get a top ten list together.
