Club spotlight: Philosophy Club

Students at Scotch Plains-Fanwood High School who want to have a better understanding of the existence and knowledge humans have should join the Philosophy Club. Philosophy club meets every week on Tuesdays and Fridays with their dedicated advisor, Mr. Krip
Meetings usually consist of the students talking to Mr. Krip and connecting what is on their minds to Philosophy. Many students take it further than the club and read books on the topics. 

“Philosophy is more prevalent than any other science or class in our daily lives. There is no comparison. Philosophy talks about common thought and explains the history of our world and how humans act all the time,” senior and President of the club Daniel Coyle said.

Philosophy is also an offered class here at Scotch Plains-Fanwood High School for students who are really interested in the concept. Philosophy is present in students’ lives. 

“I believe that students should have to take a course on philosophy because the lessons it teaches changes the way people view and interpret the world. One hundred percent of the lessons and things I have learned in philosophy club and reading philosophy are more useful to my life than any class I’ve ever taken. Ever,” senior Daniel Coyle said.

Philosophy plays an important part in everyone’s lives and it is an important thing to learn about. If interested in Philosophy students can take part in the club or talk to a counselor about taking the class in the following years.
