Young Philosophers is a quality educational service registered in Hong Kong. Young Philosophers does not promote a particular ideology. Instead, its objectives are to foster young people's curiosity about the world around them and to encourage them to reflect deeply on life's big questions. By following our courses, learners can develop their capacity for calm and rational discussion of universal issues.
What is Young Philosophers?
You will explore concepts of interest to all human beings, for example Fairness, Happiness, Beauty and Identity. You will be encouraged to question everyday understandings of Existence, Time, Infinity, etc. Throughout the courses there is a constant focus on the development of philosophical skills that underpin Critical, Creative, Collaborative and Caring thinking.
What will I study in Philosophy tutorials?
To get the most out of our Philosophy courses you should be comfortable and confident in English. If you are able to hold a meaningful discussion in English then you should be fine in our tutorials. During the Welcome session, the tutor will check that your language proficiency is high enough for you to enjoy the courses.
