If you are fascinated by ideas, like to think and to explore, are curious, and want to know where in the great marketplace of the world's ideas truth might be reasonably found you will enjoy Philosophy. It is not just an academic subject, but addresses the puzzles that arise in daily life. Its aim is to enable you to think rationally, lucidly, independently and critically, to discuss intelligently, and to argue cogently. Philosophy offers an array of courses in its 'absolute beginners' series - with no special background required.
