Course overview

Philosophy is an increasingly popular subject at school and in the wider world, as more people realise the value of thinking through some of the really 'big questions' that have puzzled and fascinated us for centuries. Philosophy at Anglia Ruskin is broadly European in outlook, taking up issues in art, literature and politics.

Philosophy examines questions about who we are, what we can know and what we should seek to do if we are to lead worthwhile lives. In our friendly, supportive and stimulating environment you will study the ideas and arguments of some of the major philosophers in the history of the subject through their own writings.

You will also examine central theories in the fields of metaphysics, aesthetics, moral and political philosophy and literary theory. Through the detailed study and interpretation of philosophical texts, the course provides rigorous intellectual training, instilling historical and theoretical awareness and developing your powers of reflection and judgement as well as vital skills of critical analysis and argument.
