Philosophy

Subject Overview

Philosophy is at the heart of every subject exploring the fundamental questions that people have asked since the beginning of time, and confronts new problems arising within contemporary society.

  • These questions are many and varied:
  • What exists?
  • What is it to be a human being?
  • What can we know?
  • How do I know what is the right thing to do?

Such questions are explored through an examination of various themes and texts. Doing Philosophy requires intellectual rigour, an open and critical mind, and a willingness to understand alternative views.
