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.
The Department of Philosophy at the University of Lethbridge will host our Philosophy Undergraduate Student Conference on March 1, 2024. Students will present papers on topics such as ethics, metaphysics, epistemology, logic, and the history of philosophy.
Time: 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
The one-day conference will wrap up with a Keynote Speaker presentation by Dr. Agnes Tam (University of Calgary) - Toward an Ethics of Belonging.
