Department of Philosophy


Philosophy is concerned with questions that are difficult to answer, yet fundamentally important. Nearly all of us want our actions to be good, our beliefs to be reasonable and our government to be just, but how do we know what is good, reasonable and just?

As a Philosophy student, you will gain an increased awareness of these issues, which pervade human life and helps establish a life-long attitude of reflection. We believe that each person’s life can be enhanced and enriched by engaging in philosophical reflection.

Indeed, the proper aim of philosophy is the development of both mind and character through a reasoned pursuit of truth and understanding of the world.
