Philosophy, "the love of wisdom", is a discipline for discussing basic questions about ourselves and our world. Students read selected works by major figures throughout the history of philosophy; they are encouraged to think critically and to formulate their own answers to perennial philosophical questions. This course is required for all students in the university. It counts as the first course for the major and minor in philosophy.
