Western Cape learners

Hundreds of Western Cape learners honed their powers of logic when they gathered to talk, read and write philosophy.

For three nights in March, more than 300 Grade 10, 11 and 12 learners - a more than 50% increase on last year - from 19 schools in the Cape metropolitan region participated in the Foundations in Philosophy course, established by Dr Greg Fried of the Department of Philosophy.

The theme for this year's course was religion, and the young philosophers were introduced to the writings of Plato, Anselm, and Pascal, among others.
