New Philosophy competition for Under 15s
The Department of Philosophy is launching a new Thought Experiment Competition which is open to school children up to 15 years old.
Thought experiments are imaginary scenarios that people use to think about philosophical issues. Entrants are asked to submit a description of the thought experiment taking up no more than one side of paper.
The best three entries will receive book prizes and a short animated film of the winning entry will also be created and put on YouTube.

The department also runs a Philosophy essay prize for school pupils in Years 10, 11 and 12.
