Welcome to Philosophy - the love of wisdom, curriculum level 3 and 4 (junior philosophy).

Philosophy is all about exploring interesting questions. For example: What is reality? What does it mean for me to ‘know’ something? What is a Mind? Does God exist? How should I live, and who should decide?

In Philosophy class we use our imagination, scientific evidence, and reflection on our experiences to try to figure out how to answer some pretty big questions.

Philosophy at Ao Tawhiti Unlimited Discovery is discussion based. You will learn how to tell the difference between convincing and non-convincing lines of reasoning.

You can join a Philosophy class with no prior experience. To succeed in Philosophy, all you need is a sense of wonder.
