Tackle the big questions that have mystified humanity since the dawn of consciousness and learn how the greatest thinkers have tried to answer them. Discuss, debate and develop your thinking as you learn invaluable skills for your future employment.
This course will introduce you to the really big puzzles that have fascinated humanity for centuries. You’ll consider questions like ‘who are we?’, ‘what can we know?’ and ‘what should we do to lead worthwhile lives?’, and learn how past thinkers have attempted to answer them.
With modules that focus on European philosophy, you’ll discuss and debate issues around art, science, literature and politics, and develop your thinking to become more rigorous, systematic and creative.
You’ll study the ideas and arguments of some of the major philosophers in history through their own writings, and explore the fundamental theories of metaphysics, aesthetics, moral and political philosophy and literature.
Philosophy will train you in skills of immediate relevance to today’s society, such as critical analysis, argument, reflection and judgement.
