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.

Humphrey Colloquium Will Be Back in 2022

Due to COVID-19-related reasons and with the safety of our students and faculty in mind, the Department of Philosophy has decided to postpone The Steven Humphrey Undergraduate Philosophy Colloquium. We will host the Humphrey Colloquium in Fall 2022 and more information about the colloquium will be provided in this space in early 2022. 

The Philosophy Department is grateful to Steven Humphrey for his ongoing, very generous financial support of the Colloquium.
