Meet the Author

For the past several years, Sharon M. Kaye, Ph.D., and Paul Thomson, Ph.D., taught philosophy to high school students through the Carroll-Cleveland Philosopher's Program, which won the 2006 American Philosophical Association Award for Excellence and Innovation in Philosophy Programs. They continue to promote the teaching of philosophy to secondary students. Philosophy, the authors believe, allows students to formulate intelligent opinions on major life issues; therefore, their book asks students to make reasoned, informed decisions about some of life's greatest debates. Kaye currently serves as an associate professor of philosophy at John Carroll University in Cleveland, OH. Thomson currently serves as Philosopher-in-Residence at Columbia Secondary School, a magnet school in New York City, where he coordinates the school's philosophy courses.
