Memoria Press believes that philosophy is one of the core pillars of a classical Christian education. Starting at an early age, our classical core curriculum teaches all students to reason well about foundational things. This eventually includes Traditional Logic, Material Logic, and Rhetoric. Each of these programs teach the original thinking skill with an easy-to-use format. Understanding philosophy and how it develops students’ perspective and behavior in the world around them is essential to education.
