Philosophy and Ethics at Thomas Adams School

Course description

Philosophy literally means ‘The Love of Wisdom’ and during this part of the course you will consider ‘Ultimate questions’ that have puzzled thinkers for thousands of years! For example: ‘What is Real?’ ‘Where does the world come from?’; ‘What is the Problem of Evil?’

Ethics is about moral choices. It is about dilemmas of life, death, sex, violence and money. It explores human virtues and vices, rights and duties. To be interested in ethics is to be interested in life. This is an interesting, challenging and engaging course that looks at issues that are relevant to you and to the world that we live in. It will appeal to anyone with an enquiring mind, who dares to ask questions to which there may not be answers!
