Philosophy explores the questions that have intrigued human beings throughout history: What is the nature of reality? What is truth? How can we know something and be certain of it? What is the nature of God? Do I have obligations to others? What are the foundations of civil society?
Every person is a philosopher of sorts and studying philosophy is a great way to bring out the philosopher in you. A philosophy major or minor is an excellent supplement to any course of study. Philosophy students learn critical and creative thinking skills that serve them well throughout their lives.
