The Philosophy Club at Hackensack High School more recently met in room 110 on Wednesdays from 3:00 until 5:00 o'clock in the afternoon for a 2.5 credit course Philosophy Concepts.
The program has included the Presocratics, Socrates, and Plato in the first semester (Fall 1995) and Aristotle and beyond in the second semester (Spring 1996). Membership in this club and course represents a significant commitment by each student. Marking period grades are based on participation and insight; Midterm and Final examinations are an integral part of the course. In 1996-97 the club was more of a discussion group without course credit. The prime topic was political philosophy. During the 1997-98 school year the club is back to a course in Philosophy Concepts! Thus also for 1998-99. But Mr Moore retired effective February 1, 1999. After a hiatus, the club is back for the 2001-2002 school year! (Click HERE for information specific to the 2001-2002 club.)
