|Description:||Philosophy is used to clarify and interpret important concepts such as truth, God, mortality, beauty, knowledge and reality. These concepts play an important role in our self-understanding and our interpretation of the world.
When you study philosophy, you’ll learn about the kind of questions that philosophers ask, and about the many different areas that interest them. These include the theory of knowledge (how we know, and what we know), metaphysics (which considers the understanding of the fundamental nature of things such as the self, the mind, time and space) ethics (the philosophical study of morality), and many others.
