Philosophy asks the big questions: Do we exist? Can we know anything? How should we live? We look at what the great thinkers have said about these questions, and examine whether their answers stand up to scrutiny. This requires expertise in critical thinking - evaluating arguments and clearly expressing arguments of your own. These skills learnt in philosophy are transferable to every area of life.
