Philosophy is the logical examination of the fundamental issues that people have pondered for more than 2500 years. What is reality and what is beauty? What is knowledge and truth? What is good and just? Philosophy courses are directed toward understanding these and other questions in their historical and cultural contexts, and applying insights to contemporary life. The study of philosophy is a key component in improving one's critical thinking skills.
