Philosophy Department


As a philosophy student, you will explore questions that have challenged and perplexed humankind for millennia; what is more, you will learn the distinctive philosophical method, a method that allows one to navigate these questions and the various answers to them. After completing our introductory course, Philosophical Inquiry, you might take courses which explore the relation between art and society, oppression and liberty, faith and reason, or how to live a good life, to mention just a few of many possibilities.

The Department of Philosophy's goals are to introduce students to the philosophical life and foster an appreciation of liberal learning--pursuing knowledge and wisdom for their own sake, not as a means to something else. This means providing academically rigorous and comprehensive courses taught by individuals committed to excellence in teaching, and cultivating among faculty and students a vigorous community of philosophical dialogue and study.
