Philosophy (AIE)

Philosophy examines, interprets and attempts to answer fundamental questions of human and natural existence. Students learn to think critically about themselves and their surroundings, including the people, institutions and societies which they inhabit. The essence of philosophy is an examination of the history of thought itself, grounded in logical expression and persuasive argumentation. Philosophy is concerned with issues of politics, religion, economics, psychology, education, ethics and our overall beliefs and values that shape our world paradigms.
