Philosophy & Critical Thinking via distance learning
Philosophy is the study of the most fundamental questions that arise from reflecting on the nature of the world and the place human beings occupy in it. The importance of studying philosophy lies in the habits of thought it inculcates, the breadth of vision it encourages, and the perspective it gives on ourselves, our activities, and our lives among others. The study of philosophy offers one of the best opportunities to enhance one's analytical, critical, expressive, and interpretive abilities, and to build both spoken and written arguments and respond to them. The program also suggests using philosophical wisdom as a way to cope with life, whether it be a specific problem or general depression. It is, undoubtedly, the beginning of a process that can enrich one's life immensely.
