Discover Days at Manchester offer potential applicants the chance to gain real insight into degree programmes they might be studying at this University. They provide a great opportunity for participants to gain first-hand experience and make informed decisions about their university choices before the start of the UCAS application process.
What makes our actions right or wrong? Is it OK to torture one innocent person in order to save the lives of a thousand others? Does God exist? How can we know anything about the world around us? Is my mind just my brain? Should we trust doctors more than homeopaths? What is truth? Is democracy better than dictatorship? Is it rational to fear death? What is time?
If you find these kinds of questions interesting, then come along to Discover Philosophy and find out more! The event is aimed at year 12 students, whether or not they are studying or have any prior knowledge of philosophy.
