What is a philosophy degree like??Watch
What sort of things do you learn?
Is the content interesting?
Is there much discussion inveolved- because I really hate discussions, I just like to get on with my work alone?
What do I need to do to get into a good uni- so super curricular stuff, any books you recommend?
And what can you do after a philosophy degree??
Thank you soo much
Why do you hate the English course? phil degrees require a lot of reading, and usually a fair whack of writing, too. They require a lot of discussion (or should do if done and engaged with properly) - philosophy is not an independent pursuit, it requires interaction with people and for you to get the most out of the course, you ought to be prepared to share ideas and ask/answer questions
Most courses will include metaphysics (first principles, abstract ideas, being, identity, time, space, existence), religion, politics, ethics, epistemology (knowledge) and some level of formal logic - the precise stuff differs dependent on university and course, but expect to be looking at people like Plato, Aristotle, Descartes, Locke, Hume, Bentham, Mill, Singer at one point or another
