Philosophy

See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ.

Colossians 2:8, ESV

What you will learn

Philosophy: from the Greek philosophia ‘the love of wisdom’.

Starting with the early Greek philosophers, we will take a tour of western philosophy. This includes discussion of thinkers from the ancient, medieval, renaissance, and enlightenment eras right up to contemporary philosophy.

Students will learn to understand and critically evaluate significant philosophies, comparing and contrasting key ideas to Biblical thought.
