Why Study Philosophy?

Philosophy is both the study of the fundamental human questions and the exercise of clear reasoning. Specialized areas of philosophy give us deeper understanding of work in other disciplines. Philosophy also addresses contemporary issues, including environmental policy, ethical problems in business and medicine, movements for social justice, and the development of artificial intelligence.

The 2016 Humphrey Colloquium was a great success! Eight undergraduate students from all over the U.S. and Canada presented their high-quality work. Professor Kristie Dotson (Michigan State University) gave a stimulating and fascinating keynote talk on identity politics.

The Philosophy Department is grateful to Steven Humphrey. The Colloquium would not have been possible without his continuous and unwavering support.
