Human sciences shed light on man and society, in the broadest possible sense. We ask questions. How do people behave and why do they behave the way they do? How do we treat each other? How do we think and how do we see things? That is what we want to know. We also learn to look at art. We investigate how people with different opinions live together, here and elsewhere. What forms of government contribute to a stable society? What did history’s greatest thinkers think and who are today’s philosophers? Where do facts end and opinions begin? Our starting point is politics and current affairs. We bring all this knowledge together in our workshop and in exciting projects, at school and beyond.

What is opinion? What is fact? We teach you to read between the lines and see connections.  Open-minded and curious?
