Philosophy is an examination of the reasoning behind our views on a wide range of big topics, such as how one should live, what humans can know, and the nature of reality. Studying philosophy will equip you with the ability to think logically, to evaluate arguments critically, and to challenge your own views and those of other people. You will investigate some of our most fundamental ideas about truth, reality, right and wrong. In doing so you will learn to analyse and present complex ideas, skills that are valuable in many professions as well as in academic study.
