Why Philosophy Makes Sense
Philosophy is about making progress on some of the most difficult and most important questions in life. When properly engaged, philosophy leads to a deeper understanding of human nature and the world around us.
Contemporary philosophy has its own jargon and professional techniques, but at heart it remains a quest for wisdom: the kind of understanding that enables one to live a fully human life.
In the discipline of Philosophy we reflect on and attempt to integrate all other disciplines, putting them in creative tension with each other in order to gain as complete an understanding of ourselves and our world as we can.
