A Level Philosophy and Ethics at Stamford Endowed Schools

Course description

This course develops the work from GCSE Philosophy and Ethics-RS which is taught at Stamford High School and Stamford School but it is open to all students whether or not they have studied this subject at GCSE. It is popular because it is so relevant and everybody has a contribution to make. We are all philosophers- we all ponder ultimate questions. The Philosophy modules consider the fundamental questions of human existence and the challenges posed to religious belief by the sciences. The revolutionary ideas of Plato and Aristotle form an integral part of the course. The Ethics modules cover Moral Theory as well as contemporary moral issues such as IVF, euthanasia, genetic engineering, sexual ethics and the morality of warfare. Each AS module is assessed by a ninety minute examination.
