About Philosophy

Philosophy is concerned with the basic questions of human existence: How should I live? What is a just society? What is knowledge? What is beauty? Is there a God?

Through the study of philosophy, students become familiar with the long tradition of Western thought on these issues. They learn about the efforts of contemporary philosophers to answer these questions and to understand the tradition we inherit.
