|It is often said that philosophy teaches you not what to think, but how to think. You will study questions such as: What is truth? How we come to know the truth? What is it to be a person? Is morality relative or are there absolute moral truths? Why do we punish criminals by putting them in prison? Is democracy the best system of government? Through studying these questions, you will develop a better understanding of different points of view, and will become a better thinker, debater, and writer. The critical thinking skills acquired in studying Philosophy include developing a critical mind, analyzing key concepts, organizing ideas, and communicating effectively.
