Philosophy

Want to change your world? Learn to change ideas first.

Ralph Waldo Emerson said that “imitation is suicide.” Ideas that we do not question are the ones that cost us the most—as professionals, as students and as citizens.

Philosophy introduces you to the history of ideas that shaped and still shape your way of life. Our goal is to give students a leg up on professional and civic life by practicing new—and old—perspectives on ethical problems.
