Dept. of Philosophy
The Department of Philosophy is distinguished by its breadth and depth in the traditional areas of philosophical inquiry and the history of philosophy, by its balance of Anglo-American and Continental perspectives, and by the involvement of its faculty in a wide variety of recent developments in the field. This breadth makes possible a considerable number of courses and concentrations.
