part of the process in developing these skills as students are encouraged to take a more independent
approach to learning in preparation for university life and learning.

as Plato, Aristotle, Aquinas and Kant. It then engages students in applying philosophical concepts to
current issues and how this is relevant in forming their own opinions. It encourages students to
become independent thinkers, a high value in our modern world and the key to success at university.
