Philosophy

Teaching

Avital Pilpel

I see teaching as a central part of the philosopher's calling. I have an experience in teaching on the graduate, undergraduate, and high school level since I was a graduate student myself. In addition I have completed my teaching certificate in Beit Berl college


On the undergraduate and graduate level, I taught courses in a wide variety of philosophical subjects. These include philosophy of science, political philosophy, philosophy of military intelligence, philosophy of medicine, philosophy of biology, and philosophy of education. I have also taught many related courses in the humanities: literature, history of communications, and critical thinking. 


On the high school level, I have taught in philosophy programs for gifted students. I am an instructor in the Mindscape program at the University of Haifa. I advised high school students who write a BA-level thesis in the humanities. These included a psychoanalytical analysis of James' The Turn of the Screw, the aesthetics of the grotesque in Dante's Inferno, and more. The first won the 'best thesis' award in 2018.
