Ask big questions. Think big ideas.
Philosophy explores the complex and ever-evolving questions that we face in our everyday lives in a rational and critical way. It addresses fundamental issues—relevant to all disciplines—about the nature of truth, knowledge, justice, meaning and beauty.
You’ll find that the big questions of philosophy are universal and can be applied to the significant issues facing humanity and the ethical dilemmas we each face every day. The study of philosophy can be applied to virtually any discipline, like medicine, science, politics and law.
All disciplines employ reasoning in pursuing knowledge but philosophy is unique in explicitly exploring the nature of reasoning and its relation to the pursuit of truth and practical wisdom.—Colin MacLeod, Chair
