IB Philosophy at King Ethelbert School
Philosophy is a systematic critical inquiry into profound, fascinating and challenging questions, such as what does it mean to be human? Do we have free will? What do we mean when we say something is right or wrong? These abstract questions arise out of our everyday experiences, and philosophical tools such as critical and systematic thinking. Studying philosophy provides an opportunity for students to engage with some of the world’s most interesting and influential thinkers.
