The study of philosophy will give you the intellectual resources you need to better understand yourself, your world, and your society. Philosophy concerns itself with the fundamental issues of justice, morality, knowledge, and reality. We will explore the ideas of great thinkers from a variety of movements and traditions. Whether we realize it or not, these ideas have shaped our civilization-and even our consciousness.
