About this program

Philosophy

Philosophy is the study of reality and our place within it. Through philosophical reflection one can begin to experience oneself and life in a more thoughtful and intensive fashion.

Philosophy is the key to living well. It is not just an academic discipline; it is a way of life that helps you develop your own internal compass to orientate yourself to what really matters. Only by critically examining your own ideas and perspectives, can you come to a deeper awareness of yourself, others, and the world in which we live, can you come to see the big picture in all its complexity, ambiguity, and beauty. This is why philosophy is said to begin and end in wonder. In Philosophy, you build your character, develop your own perspective, determine the values you truly stand for and know why you stand for them, why they are important. Philosophy is simply thinking and caring about the things that really matter in life. So what do you care about?
