The question ‘what philosophy is and does’ is part of ‘doing philosophy’. Join Bettina on this taster course covering different answers to this question: philosophy as a set of tools for clarifying concepts; as an aid to scientific inquiry; as an approach to understanding human existence (with particular reference to existentialism );  as a system of thought;  as a way to arrive at principles of government or rules for morality; as the search for meaning in life.
