One of the oldest academic disciplines in the world, philosophy has changed a lot since its Ancient Greek founders walked barefoot through cities and gathered on picturesque hills. But in other ways, it hasn’t changed so much at all. Consider the big questions alongside giants from the past like Socrates, Plato and the dozens of more contemporary philosophers who show us who we are by asking the big questions. Introducing key concepts and schools of thought from throughout the history of philosophy, this course also includes a key focus on the development of critical thinking and argumentation. What is a good argument? What is real? How should we be governed? What is art? Students will explore the parameters of ‘the philosophical’ and investigate the place of philosophy in everyday life. This hugely stimulating course will invest students with key transferable intellectual skills and provide an unforgettable academic experience.
