What is Philosophy about?
Philosophy is the subject that specializes in exploring fundamental questions about the world and our place in it. For example: What is reality? What does it mean for me to know something? What is space? What is time? What is a Mind? Does God exist? How should I live, and who should decide?

Philosophical discussion draws on imaginative speculation, scientific evidence, sustained reflection on lived experience, and the different histories, cultural perspectives and texts that shape current thought.

What will I learn?
Philosophy at Unlimited is highly discussion based and aims to develop students’ critical thinking skills. Through a range of applied Philosophical topics, students will learn how to assess arguments for validity and soundness. They will also learn how to refute arguments logically and construct their own rationally convincing arguments both in verbal and written form.
