Description: As an academic discipline, philosophy is commonly subdivided into areas such as ethics and political philosophy, aesthetics, epistemology (the theory of knowledge), metaphysics (the theory of reality or being), logic and the philosophy of logic, philosophy of language, philosophy of mind, philosophy of science, philosophy of religion, and the history of philosophy. Much of what was once considered a part of philosophy is now studied in the several disciplines of the natural and social sciences Indeed, the history of philosophy is in many ways the history of Western thought. On the one hand, philosophy remains connected its history by continuing to investigate questions that concerned Plato and Aristotle 2,500 years ago; on the other, it remains in the forefront of the collective pursuit of knowledge by working on questions—for example, those concerning the relationship between minds and computers—that could not even have been formulated before the last century. The Co-op program allows you to alternate in-school learning with 12 to 16 months of full-time paid work experience.
