Professor Eileen John from Warwick university visits HAP

On Friday 1st December, Professor Eileen John from Warwick university came to Harris Academy Peckham to run a seminar on Philosophy and Aesthetics. This was conducted with our year 12 Religious studies cohort, alongside some visiting students from Harris Academy Bermondsey. There was also an insightful discussion about studying philosophy at university. This was a fascinating dialogue comparing Plato and Aristotle’s perspective on the value of fiction as groundwork for moral virtue. Students made some fantastic comments including an exploration of whether our lives are a mere reflection of the cultural influences around us and the extent to which fiction can tell truth about moral human nature.

The seminar got students thoroughly excited about studying philosophy at a university like Warwick

I really enjoyed the comments from the Harris Bermondsey girls proposing the idea that fiction is not a deception, and that fiction actually shares a lot of 'real' aspects of human existence.
It raised question to  “At what point does fiction become reality?”

Tia Year 12

I got to understand that there are different professional fields under a Philosophy course, which I had no idea about. I think this is a fantastic opportunity for a multitude of future careers.

A recording of other Eileen john’s own thoughts on the matter can be found bellow

We look forward to continued work with Warwick’s philosophy department.
