PLATO (Philosophy Learning and Teaching Organization) has released the topic for this year's high school essay contest, which draws on epistemology, the branch of philosophy that deals with theories of knowledge: "What is truth? What makes a claim -- that is, something we think, believe, hear, say, or read -- true or false?" The essay contest is open to all high school students in the U.S. Entries are due by Jan. 31, 2018. www.plato-philosophy.org/high-school-essay-contest/
