Robinson college is setting some interesting questions for Year 12 students to discuss (with reference to any academic discipline or area of interest) for its annual Essay Prize:
- 'Science has made us Gods even before we are worthy of being men.'
- 'Poetry is the art of uniting pleasure with truth.'
- 'The real purpose of books is to trap the mind into doing its own thinking.'
- 'Science may set limits to knowledge, but should not set limits to imagingation.'
- 'It's in literature that true life can be found. It's under the mask of fiction that you can tell the truth.'
If you would like to write an essay for this competition, the deadline is 1 August 2015. Do read the full information on Robinson College's website.
