Department of Philosophy

KNOWLEDGE. JUSTICE. REASONING.

Welcome to the Department of Philosophy

Philosophers study the deep intellectual problems that underlie or unify other disciplines in the sciences and humanities.

Philosophy investigates fundamental questions about the nature of things—about the universe as a whole, about human beings, society, science, ethics and art. As a philosophy student, you will learn about the basic intellectual foundation for our political, social and legal systems, as well as our understanding of the principles of modern science and technology. You will explore deep theoretical, practical and moral issues that do not easily fit into more specialized disciplines. Philosophy will challenge you with its reflective and critical approach to important, often puzzling, questions about the nature of right and wrong, time and space perception, and the human mind.

Philosophy Reading Weekend

The Philosophy Reading Weekend is a new tradition in the Department of Philosophy. Every year, in the spring/early summer, we rent a house in the area. Faculty members and about ten students spend the weekend reading and discussing a philosophical work, cooking together, eating (a lot, if experience is any indication) and having fun. The philosophy reading weekend has been a big success in the first two years of its existence. Look out for the advertisements in your classes and in the Department News!

Philosophy Peer Resource Centre

The Philosophy Peer Resource Centre will resume in Fall 2020.
