Warwick Uni Philosophy Lecture - By Xue-Jun & Zuthika, Year 10

Xue-Jun & Zuthika, Year 10, report on an "eye-opening" philosophical experience.

Students were recently given an opportunity to attend a philosophy lecture led by visitors from Warwick University.

Students from Harris Academy Peckham and Harris Academy Bromley joined us for the event, where lecturers and university students from the university answered our questions and explained new philosophical concepts.

MY7A1871

The day began with a lecture by Dr David Woods on identity and how philosophy and psychology interlink. Students were presented with interesting case studies about the effects and ethics of advancements in neuroscience, discussing the philosophy of personal identity.

Dr Karen Simecek gave an interesting talk on art and literature and the theory of cognitivism within different forms of art including TV, film, poetry, music and books. Examples of these works given by our students included Frankenstein and The Picture of Dorian Gray.

We were also surprised to discover that philosophy is a degree which can be taken in conjunction with subjects such as mathematics, literature and art.

One HAB Year 10 spoke about how the ethical questions discussed were “eye-opening”

Besides philosophy, we were also able to ask questions regarding university life, writing personal statements and relevant qualifications.

A Warwick University student said: “I enjoyed sharing my experiences of university with the students.”

Thank you to Ms Senior and all the visitors for such an interesting experience.
