Maja Sidzińska


My approach to teaching is student-centered, dialectical, and focused on the value of good questions. Whenever possible, I ask for student input on course content as well as structure, and I aim to create situations in which students drive philosophical discussion. My reading lists usually present arguments that address earlier, opposing arguments, to model the iterative way philosophical inquiry proceeds. I focus on modeling the skills that can be used to decide philosophical questions, rather than on providing answers. I often ask students to themselves construct interesting and relevant questions about philosophical texts and positions, and ask them to justify their choices.
