Letters to My Philosophy Students

As Director of Studies of Pathways to Philosophy, I have had the privilege of being mentor to many hundreds of distance learning philosophy students from around the world.
Since 1995, when the Pathways distance learning program was launched, I have written thousands of letters in response to essays and course work which my students have sent me. I am presenting a sample from the first three years, which I hope will be of instructional value as well as casting light on the early development of Pathways. The names of students have been changed.
Under each name below you will find a list of links in chronological order. Each link provides a brief description of the philosophical topic or problem. You can browse through the lists looking for topics that interest you, or you can start with the first letter in a list and work your way through.
If you have an appetite for more, you can browse through my letters in response to student philosophy essays from 2001 onwards at Electronic Philosopher. There's also an Electronic Philosopher Index. The dates in the index refer to the time when the letters were added to the archive rather to when they were originally written.
