Philosophy is the study of the underlying nature of everything from knowledge and existence to morality and the mind. You will learn how to analyse and construct arguments on a range of philosophical topics. An enquiring and analytic mind are a must!
During the first year you will study epistemology (theory of knowledge) and ethics and will. You will explore questions such as; What is real? What can I know? How do I make moral decisions? What do I mean by ‘good’?
In Year 13 study allows you to develop a deeper knowledge while exploring topics within the areas of the philosophy of mind and the philosophy of religion, answering questions such as; Can I prove beyond doubt that there is a God? What attributes must a divine being possess? Are my mind and body separate? Is a mental state just a complex physical state?
Students go on to study a variety of degree courses as the analytic and logical skills developed in philosophy are respected by many professions.
