Philosophy students examine questions pertaining to the nature of language, reality, and ethical commitment--questions that are fundamental to human existence but defy definitive answers.
The study of philosophy develops skills in interpreting texts, thoughtfully responding to other viewpoints, constructing and evaluating argumentation, and the disciplined imagining of novel possibilities for human knowing, valuing, and living.
Philosophy Lunch Chats:
First Thursday of the month from noon to 1PM during the term, a (typically) small group interested faculty, staff, students, and community members get together in the Philosophy Lounge (Coleman 62) to chat about some philosophical topic over pizza in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. There's nothing to sign up for, and you won't get a grade, ever. Feel free to be a regular or show up just once. For more information about Philosophy Lunch Chats or to offer suggestions for future chats (warmly welcomed), contact Professor Matthew Slater <email@example.com>.
