About this Unit
In this unit students explore the application of texts – including works of literature, philosophy and sociology/cultural studies – to our understanding of contemporary debates and challenges in order to develop critical thinking skills. Developing skills in textual analysis, this unit addresses topical issues and social problems so as to consider enduring questions such as ‘What is the human?’, ‘What is the good life?’, ‘What is meaning and how do we make it?’, and ‘What is inequality and what should we do about it?’.
