Bespoke Debating Workshop

‘Philosophy is not here to provide all of the answers’  declared Mr. Matthew Wood, Deputy Head (Admissions) and Historian at Caterham School. 7S thrived in a bespoke workshop that saw the boys debate key philosophical concepts and link their thinking to great minds from the past such as Thomas Aquinas. Dante’s Divine Comedy was a constant reference point for the boys who created their individual questions for debate using the ‘is it right that…’ stem. As the workshop concluded, minds had been stretched and fired with the key conclusion from all was that what philosophy can do however, which is more powerful, is ask the right questions.
