How to navigate a Radical World
Obsessions with identity, race, gender, and sexual orientation have overtaken America, and our future hangs in the balance.
Fathom the Good is uniquely designed to address this problem of radicalization. We distinguish between the Good Philosophy behind the American Founding from today’s postmodern confusion.
Good Philosophy, developed out of the Socratic tradition of political philosophy, revived what is known as the question of the Good. This is a question of higher human purposes. When enriched by Biblical religion, the question of the Good becomes the essence of our freedom and moral agency. It is what Socrates would have called the "good of the soul."
When guided by the good of the soul, children and adults learn to think in clear, constructive ways according to true morality and common sense.
Viewing the human condition with knowledge of the Good will transform America from the inside out.
What Is Wisdom Against the World?
We Create Confident Teens
Social media has taught young people to think in soundbites. But to think clearly amid the chaos, young people must learn to think in truly critical ways.
Fathom the Good uses Primary Sources from the Great Thinkers, as well as Professor Hancock’s Original Text, to help young minds to critically consider the human condition. Our Reasoning Tools develop reading, writing, and discussion skills to accomplish a high degree of understanding. And our animated Mentoring Videos provide enriching content for further insight.
We teach Good Philosophy so reason once again can be a friend to faith— because as knowledge increases, so, too, does one's confidence in the Good of God’s creation and in our own divine purposes.
We Create Confident Adults
Children are not the only ones who need Good Philosophy. Adults also need help to think clearly in a radical world. Our Courses for Adults make it possible for the whole family to get onboard. We provide busy adults with the understanding they need to help their families and communities navigate the world.
In addition to Primary Sources, Original Text, and Mentoring Videos, our adult courses also include Podcast for Parents and a Family Discussion Guide.
Our optional Socratic Discussion Guide facilitates reading groups, couple's discussions, and any other group discussions by summarizing content and providing meaningful questions to guide you along.
We Create Confident Children
Why wait until children are grown before introducing them to the best ideas?This is a question every parent needs to ask, particularly in a world where the innocent are indoctrinated. It is never too early — and it is never too late — to engage even young children with the best ideas and the greatest thinkers.
Soon to come are Fathom's unique line of historically accurate storybooks about the lives and ideas of the greatest thinkers of all time. Philosophers such as Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Cicero, Machiavelli, Descartes, Madison, Tocqueville, and Lincoln will help your child embark on a great adventure of learning! Inspire them to become the best they can be, despite a world that tells them otherwise.
“In an era when civic and moral confusion, this educational curriculum is bound to open eyes and lift up souls. Their curriculum is accessible, thoughtful, and inviting, and utterly free from fashionable but corrupting ideas. Bravo!”

"What is the most important thing we can teach to prepare our youth to lead us into the future? Correct principles based on God's laws. Teach them that there is a right and wrong, a good and evil, and help them recognize the good through critical thinking. Fathom the Good teaches these vital skills."
