Entry 2015

Philosophy begins by asking ‘why?’, often questioning something we normally perhaps wouldn't. Why should we obey the law? Do numbers exist? The processes of imaginative yet rigorous thinking, and sensitivity to conceptual distinctions, provide intellectual growth that is both satisfying in itself and applicable in your future life and career.
