Philosophy examines, interprets and attempts to answer the unasked, fundamental questions of human and natural existence. Students learn to think critically about themselves and their surroundings including the people, institutions and societies which they inhabit. The unique approaches to philosophic investigation and understanding lead to the bottom line differences of opinion in the areas of politics, religion, economics, psychology, education, ethics and our overall beliefs and values that shape our world paradigms.
