Program Information

School: Mount Allison University
Faculty: Faculty of Arts
Degree: Bachelor
Field of Study: Philosophy
Description: Philosophy is the endeavour to understand the basic questions that arise for us in our world, and to formulate this understanding in a critical manner. Traditionally, these questions have touched upon what can be known, what can be valued, what our own position is socially and individually- above all, how we can know what we think we know.

The Department believes that careful study of the great works of the past and present provides the best access to philosophical questions. Thus many of our courses concentrate the student on developments in the history of philosophy, from the sixth century B.C. to the twentieth century. Courses in logic, ethics, metaphysics, philosophy of science and the philosophy of mind examine special issues in these developments and are compared to the formulation of these same issues in Asian philosophy.
