Philosophy as a discipline, in western civilization, has its roots in the thought of ancient Greece, which posed three questions which philosophers have ever since attempted to answer: (1) What is real? (2) How do we know? (3) What should we do? (metaphysics, epistemology, ethics, respectively). The department’s program is designed to introduce students to this rich tradition of thought and speculation. Such an introduction will provide them with an understanding of the development of the thought of their civilization and thus prepare them to participate thoughtfully and critically in our complex, modern society. Students taking philosophy courses will develop skills in critical thinking, argumentation, reading, and writing.
