From the fall of Ancient Greece to the rise of Artificial Intelligence, this course provides a philosophical grounding to some of the biggest questions we face. We will challenge assumptions, provoke debate and offer a multi-disciplinary approach to how we might ask the right questions and answer them together in a community of inquiry. For guidance, we will collaborate with our academics and industry partners, drawing on politics, economics, history, psychology, the arts, science, technology, ethics and religion in the pursuit of truth.
Students will get to choose from a range of topics and engage in the following assessment types over the semester including;
- collaborative oral commentary
- community of inquiry
- extended philosophical argument (in the form of a journal abstract)
- podcast production
This course equips students with higher order critical and creative thinking skills that can be applied across both the ATAR and IB Diploma curriculum.
