Examine the Big Questions

Philosophy Department

The Philosophy Department is a vibrant, intellectually diverse group focused on undergraduate education and public engagement in philosophy. We have strengths in ethics, political philosophy, environmental philosophy, philosophy of religion and Asian philosophy.

Our department embraces pluralism in our approach to all philosophical disciplines, and we pride ourselves on developing a strong sense of community with our students, faculty and staff.

We invite you to stop by the Philosophy House for more information about our programs or a friendly chat.

The Philosophical Society meets every Wednesday at 3:30 p.m. in the Philosophy House during the regular semester.

Our Academic Programs

Our students are trained to develop their ability to think critically and to examine fundamental questions about the nature of the self and the world, and thus to establish a foundation for intelligent action in the world. Students are exposed to a variety of philosophical perspectives and asked to philosophize.

Discover the depth of thinking and the open classroom environment Wesley loves about the philosophy major.

The value of philosophical thinking for me resides in the possibility to see things for what they are, to understand them and to imagine new possibilities for how they could or should be.
