Enter your school into this Cambridge Festival Philosothon Special!

Philosothons promote philosophical enquiry and rigour by bringing students together around stimulus material that allows the group to move beyond discussion towards critical inquiry. The idea is not to ‘attack’ or ‘defeat’ another person’s position, but to enable the group to move towards an awareness of the underlying concepts within each debate, and to develop a critical understanding of different positions and arguments. Students are encouraged to ask questions of others in the group in order to probe deeper and try to understand and clarify both their own viewpoints and arguments and those expressed within the group.
