Students broadened their understanding of the world around them and enhanced their critical reasoning skills and creativity during this day of seminars and philosophical inquiry. Students had the opportunity to explore the concept of knowledge, extend their understanding of quantum physics, deconstruct the man-made systems of morality and the concept of evil, develop metacognitive and self-management skills, and debate on the concept of animal rights.
