    Hey! was just wondering if anyone knows what's involved in A-Level Philosophy? I'm tempted to take it because I'm a very deep thinker but is it criticised that you actually just learn other Philosopher's ideas?

    Philosophy of Religion. The New Testament element will provide an introduction to New Testament literature and develop awareness of some key events, beliefs and significant human experiences that are reflected in it, such as miracles and ideas concerning the end of the world. Philosophy of Religion complements it by providing the opportunity for study of fundamental philosophical themes, including human experiences of evil and suffering and life after death. It provides an opportunity to engage with some of the most challenging questions of human existence such as, ‘What is the purpose of our lives?’ and ‘Why are we here?’ It will help you to acquire the ability to think logically, to analyse issues and to express ideas clearly. Theology and Philosophy aims to promote an enquiring, critical, yet sympathetic study of some of the major beliefs and issues affecting our world today. This subject provides you with the training and skills to think independently, rationally and question what others might take for granted.
