About Philosophy

Philosophy uniquely provides several avenues for better understanding of and interacting with our world. Philosophical thinking gives us tools for pondering the big questions about the nature of reality, time, being, causation and human consciousness. It allows us to distinguish between facts supported by rigorous evidence and assumptions supported by hearsay or opinion.

Philosophy gives us techniques for comprehending the most important questions underpinning science, religion, art and the conduct of our lives. By studying philosophy, our thinking becomes more reasonable and articulate, allowing us to make more responsible career choices and to make our lives more fulfilling and meaningful.
