Why Philosophy?


Philosophy seeks to unify our lives, and to clarify the values that give life meaning. It illuminates such perplexing issues as what makes society just, how the mind and body are related, whether actions are free or determined, and inquires into religious perspectives. We offer a range of courses from studies of pivotal thinkers throughout history, to metaphysics, epistemology and religious thought, as well as ethical inquiries into medicine, business, and the environment.
