Unlike other fields of study, philosophy pursues fundamental questions about every dimension of human life, about the nature of reality, and about the nature of knowledge and thought itself. Philosophy is concerned with issues of ethics, politics, religion, economics and the overall beliefs and values that shape our worldview. Philosophy develops our capacity to see the world from different perspectives and deepens our sense of the meaning and variety of human experience. Philosophy students lean to think critically about themselves and the world that surrounds them. Philosophical training enhances our logical and analytical abilities, our problem-solving capacities, our persuasive powers, and our ability to understand and express ideas.
