What is Philosophy?
Philosophy, simply put, is the attempt to understand ourselves and our place in the world both in a moral and intellectual sense. Questions investigated by philosophers can range from the universal and timeless ' Does God exist? ' to specific and relevant to today’s headlines ' What are the ethical implications of the development of genetic technology? '
The study of philosophy is inextricably linked to all aspects of human endeavour, but in terms of higher education it can be directly tied to studies in the law, medicine, political science, history, religion, education, linguistics, sociology, women’s studies, the sciences, and fine arts.
