Dear Students and Parents,
We are happy to announce the publication and distribution of our new special essay collection book entitled “Hate” by Miss Christina’s High Non-Fiction Reading Class!
If you haven’t yet, you will be able to pick up a copy of this book for free, so please don’t forget to get yourself one and for anyone you think might be interested in the topic.
We hope seeing this publication will give you food for thought about how philosophy, linguistics, and language can be used to understand our complex and troubled world today.
We also hope it will inspire you to use your essay writing skills to change people’s minds and thus change the world.
Miss Christina has advanced degrees in literature and has specialized training in philosophy as well, so you can see how she has used her skills to help her students produce this special topic book using advanced analysis and critical thinking. Here is her introduction to the book:
“The “Hate” book was conceived of in the HS Non-Fiction Reading class over the Autumn term. Wittgenstein, a philosopher and linguist, sincerely believed that people behaved the way they did because of how they interacted with the world. As a linguist, he believed this happened through language; that the way we explain or rationalise something to ourselves is how we develop prejudices. He had seven separate propositions that defined this process of an idea into fundamental beliefs. My HS Non-Fiction Reading class set out to prove whether he was correct by using the idea of Hate, an essay written about hate by Hazlitt and current ‘hate’ crimes to develop a researched analysis to determine if hate is borne into us or a choice.”
Be sure to check out the books on the reading lists Miss Christina will be teaching over this summer. They are excellent to read over the summer, not only to make you a more advanced student preparing for college, but also to help you become more knowledgable about the world.
