Philosophy has a distinctive place in a university education. In philosophy class we ask, and try to answer, some of the deepest questions confronting us as human beings. For example: What is knowledge? What is justice? Who am I? What am I? Am I a physical thing, or something more? What makes me me? What sort of thing is an artwork? What makes an artwork good or bad? Where is the line between art and propaganda? In order to address these questions, we learn certain reflective ways of thinking, arguing, and writing. We employ concepts and strategies of reasoning and explanation that have themselves been critically assessed within philosophy for their clarity, soundness and cogency. Our philosophical reflections are also guided by critical engagement with the views of great thinkers like Plato, Aristotle, Descartes, Hume, Kant, Hegel, Nietzsche, Quine, Kripke, and many others. Specialists, Majors and Minors can look forward to substantial interaction with these authors.
