It's all relative!

This presentation will discuss arguments about whether moral values are culturally relative and will demonstrate the critical reasoning skills that are central to philosophy.

It will also provide a brief overview of the philosophy major at ANU and will give reasons why majoring in philosophy can provide highly valued transferable skills that increase employability and enhance students potential for success in other areas of study.
