The Department of Philosophy

What is the study of Philosophy all about?

Philosophy investigates fundamental questions about the nature of things—about the universe as a whole, about human beings, society, science, ethics and art.

As a Philosophy student, you will learn about the basic intellectual foundation for our political, social and legal systems, as well as our understanding of the principles of modern science and technology.

You will explore deep theoretical, practical and moral issues that do not easily fit into more specialized disciplines.

Philosophy will challenge you with its reflective and critical approach to important, often puzzling, questions about the nature of right and wrong, time and space perception, and the human mind.
