    • Students in the Department of Philosophy combine deep intellectual analyses of important philosophers with a robust and comprehensive survey of important ideas, pairing an understanding of both thinker and thought. Their research and writing, under the guidance of our esteemed faculty, influences the field and reshapes the modern understanding of ideas.

      Recently, their thought-provoking work has covered topics such as:

      • The concept of nature in Aristotle
      • The birth of political life in Hobbes
      • The concept of experience in Dewey
      • Politics as critique
      • Veganism as virtue
      • Affirmation in Nietzsche
      • Perceptual content
      • Aesthetics and everyday life
      • Atheory of concepts
      • Agency and responsibility
  • Take The Next Step
