Philosophy investigates questions of human thought and life

  • knowledge and belief (epistemology)
  • the nature of reality (metaphysics)
  • morality and aesthetics (value theory)

Courses relate traditional questions to contemporary work in literature and the social and natural sciences. Students examine classic texts in philosophy, ancient and modern.

The curriculum covers the dominant contemporary schools of philosophy in the Anglo-American (Analytic) and European (Continental) traditions.
