Philosophy and Ethics
2008 was the first year of implementation. The first WACE examinations for Philosophy and Ethics were conducted in 2009.
Please click on one of the headings below to view the relevant information and documents which are available in PDF (Portable Document Format) and rich text format.
Philosophy and Ethics engages students with three classical questions of the human condition: ‘What is real?’; ‘How do we know?’ and ‘How should we live?’ Within this context, the course gives students the opportunity to explore and tackle the world of concepts from both contemporary and historical perspectives. Students are provided with an apprenticeship in concept clarification, concept evaluation and argument. They are taught the specific skills to inquire, reason and make judgements.
