Overview

Philosophy is the effort to understand the most basic human questions using analytical, verbal, and spatial reasoning. It is the exploration of how you can know what you think you know. It helps you challenge your own beliefs, consider others’ points of view, and ultimately better know the world around you.

The department of philosophy at Mount Allison believes that careful study of the great works of the past and present provides the best access to philosophical questions, and is committed to diversity. You will explore the history of philosophy from the sixth century B.C. to the 21st century, with areas of teaching and research in:
