Department of Philosophy

Department Chair: Rebecca S. Whisnant, Ph.D.

Philosophy — the pursuit of wisdom — deals systematically with values and concepts central to our lives as individuals and social beings. Here, our faculty help our students explore the rational bases of other areas of inquiry such as science, social science, politics, and religion. Our faculty facilitate the development of valuable, advanced skills in constructing and analyzing arguments, reading and writing critically and with precision, and approaching problems imaginatively and reflectively.
