METHODS OF

PHILOSOPHIZING
Answer the following questions together in
class:
1.Which group shared the story that was close
enough to the real picture?
2. Which story was farthest from the real
picture?
3. Before you saw the real picture, do you
think it was possible for the class to answer
the questions a and b?
Intended Learning Outcome:
At the end of the lesson,
you are expected to demonstrate
understanding that the methods
of philosophy lead to wisdom
and truth.
•Imagine the whole magazine
picture representing the TRUTH, the
teacher representing a supreme
being who alone has access to the
bigger teacher representing a
supreme being who alone has
access to the bigger part of the
truth.
•And the groups representing all of
us who equally have small bits of
knowledge about the TRUTH. Do
you think this is a more or less
accurate representation of our
human condition? What does this
say about human being’s quest for
truth?
• In reality, no one has complete access to
the bigger truth. Being human essentially
means that our views will always be
partial. As such, no one has a say on
what “method” is right in ascertaining
what is true. In the end, our approaches
to understanding truths will always be
related to our unique position in this vast
richness of reality.
