Living the life of The GAME: A LETTER TO THE READERS OF ANALYTIC TEACHING

  • Gavin J. Fairbairn

Abstract

Introduction: Dear readers of Analytic Teaching:
I am writing this letter in the hope of enlisting your help with a thought experiment I created some years ago as a piece of teaching material. I had been invited to run a philosophical workshop with a group of able 14-1 5 year old pupils, who had had no previous contact with philosophy. In preparing for that workshop I had decided to use some materials I have written to introduce undergraduates in religious and moral studies, to thinking philosophically about moral issues. However, since my remit was to stimulate this group of youngsters in a more general way, I decided to write something new. The GAME was the result.
