About the subject

Year 12 Overview (new Spec)

Philosophy & Ethics is a foundational subject for many other subject areas.  Philosophy is concerned with seeking to find answers to “ultimate questions” about the meaning, purpose and origin of life.  In Ethics students consider different approaches to making moral decisions and apply these ideas to various issues.

 

Philosophy & Ethics is an essay based subject in which students develop the skills of logical and rational argument, analysis and critical evaluation.
