Course description

The Philosophy Diploma Course starts off with an introduction to the subject, answering the question, “What is Philosophy?”. You’ll explore its evolution over time, taking in ancient, medieval, modern and contemporary philosophy, and how philosophy has been professionalised. The various types and branches of philosophy are discussed as you learn about metaphysics, epistemology, ethics, aesthetics, political philosophy, and philosophy of religion.

A portion of the Philosophy Diploma Course is dedicated to ancient philosophy, in order to provide you with some perspective on what we know today. You’ll look at commonly and lesser-studied philosophies, as you learn about Ancient Egyptian, Greek, African, Middle Eastern, Jewish, Persian, Chinese, Buddhist and Indian philosophy.

With ancient philosophy understood, the course then takes you through modern philosophy. You’ll look at schools of thought common in contemporary Western philosophy, including rationalism, empiricism, idealism, existentialism, phenomenology, pragmatism, and analytic philosophy. You’ll also go further, as you discover international contemporary philosophies, including Afrocentricity, Consciencism, New Confucianism, Neo Vedanta, and Buddhist Modernism.

The Philosophy Diploma Course explains how knowledge of philosophical principles can be applied to real-life situations. You will be guided in how Confucius, Machiavelli, and Martin Luther King Jr put philosophy into lived action. The course concludes by considering the demographic imbalance of philosophy in the West - focussing on race, nationality and gender issues within the academic discipline.
