Increasing in popularity amongst students Philosophy, Ethics and Religion is a brilliant foundation for structuring arguments and independent thinking.
Philosophy, Ethics and Religion takes students on a journey through the big spiritual, ethical, and philosophical questions that humans have asked since the dawn of time. Why are we here? What is the meaning of life? Why does evil exist? Who am I? It does this through three units.
In this unit we will explore arguments for and against the existence of God. Were the universe and humankind created by an all-powerful being, one who continues to influence human affairs today or is everything the accidental result of a ‘Big Bang’?
In this unit we will explore moral decision making, including the use of happiness, love, and religion in making decisions on issues ranging from torture to animal testing. We will also look at what the term ‘good’ actually means and what some of the greatest minds in history (both religious and non-religious) have said about how to be good.
