Philosophy

The love of wisdom

A place for thought

A student of philosophy can expect to gain critical awareness, knowledge of ideas that have shaped civilization, vastly increased reading comprehension skills, an appreciation of clarity, the ability to articulate complex ideas and issues, and a tolerance for opposing points of view.

Where do we go from here?

Since wisdom or knowledge is pursued in every area of inquiry, philosophy covers a lot of territory. Philosophy of Science, Philosophy of Mind, Philosophy of Religion, Moral Philosophy, Political Philosophy, Logic; this is just a short list of the many and diverse branches of philosophy. One thing that all these investigations have in common is that the questions that are addressed admit to more than one answer.
