Subjects Offered

Philosophy 1 (Critical Thinking)

Deals with the use of critical thinking in the pursuit of truth utilizing the Aristotelian Logic and the fundamentals of Ethics. It focuses on the fundamental principles and methods of correct and moral reasoning so as to equip students with logical and ethical tools to counteract falsehood and inconsistency. The course is essentially performance-based, consisting of a progressive series of concepts to be learned and mastered. It helps students acquire an intellectual depth and breadth, critical judgment, moral sensitivity and social consciousness to enable them to achieve clear and mature decisions.

Philosophy 2 (Philosophy of the Human Person)

Aimed at addressing the question: What does it mean to be a person? The response is elucidated through the use of the phenomenological method – a vital tool in the understanding of the person.  In this course, the student is encouraged to embark on a journey, to recall those experiences that challenge him/her as a person. At the end of the reflective journey, the student awakens to a realization of the richer meaning of what it means to be a human being; it helps the student acquire intellectual breadth and depth, critical judgment, moral sensitivity and social consciousness which will enable him/her to progress in achieving clear and mature decisions. A study of this subject will enrich the study of other subjects. We will bridge theory to action through a 20-hour service component that allows for active cultivation and expression of core values through participation in the local community.
