Philosophy and Ethics (Religious Studies) A Level at Oasis Academy Brightstowe

Course description

Does the universe show evidence of design? Where does evil come from? Is an action always good if it leads to good consequences? Is it acceptable to kill in times of war? Is sex a moral issue? If you are interested in philosophical and ethical questions and want to enhance your moral, cultural and spiritual education, as well as your communication skills, this subject is for you. You will question whether the principles on which religion is based fit with the rest of our knowledge of the universe and undertake an in-depth study of one aspect of philosophy or ethics through coursework.
