Philosophy

The courses develop reasoning skills by focusing on abstract concepts and philosophical problems. They develop basic knowledge and understanding of philosophy and encourage candidates’ ability to engage with abstract thought. They also offer candidates insight into the ideas of others, while developing a range of skills such as analysing arguments, recalling, selecting and using specified knowledge, explaining philosophical ideas and theories, explaining criticisms of philosophical ideas and theories, and presenting ideas in a logical sequence in an extended piece of writing.
