Choose your own philosophy adventure

Updated Wednesday 26th June 2013

'Castle, Forest, Island, Sea' is a choose-your-own-adventure story that explores key questions in philosophy. Where will your chosen path lead you?

Castle, Forest, Island, Sea

From bickering birds to scary monsters, choose your quest and find your way out of the castle.

There are nine chapters exploring key questions in philosophy and it will take approximately 30-60 minutes to complete your adventure. As you navigate through the story, the game will build up an idea of how you feel about these questions, and at the end of the game you'll receive an analysis of your choices and a map of how your opinions compare to different philosophers through the ages.

Trust and the state of nature

Thomas Hobbes (1588-1679), perhaps the greatest English political philosopher, argued that life in the state of nature would be, "solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short". But what is the state of nature? Need it be so miserable? And why does this matter, anyway? Jonathan Wolff, Professor of Philosophy, University College London, considers the issues.
