Philosophy (KS2)

Module Overview

Originated by: Dr Dimitar Georgiev

Philosophy, translated in Greek as ‘love of wisdom’, is the study of general and fundamental problems concerning matters such as existence, knowledge, values, reason, mind, and language. The term was probably coined by Pythagoras (c. 570–495 BCE). Philosophical methods include questioning, critical discussion, rational argument, and systematic presentation. Classic philosophical questions include: Is it possible to know anything and to prove it? What is most real? Philosophers also pose more practical and concrete questions such as: “Is there a best way to live”, “Do humans have free will?”

This module looks at broad philosophical questions and highlights how studying philosophy in undergraduate or graduate programmes contribute in the fields of law, journalism, politics, religion, science, business and various art and entertainment activities.

We will explore

  • What is philosophy?
  • Interesting philosophical questions
  • What is the value of philosophy now?
  • How to develop an enquiring mind
  • Sharing ideas on philosophy
