Discover a fundamental academic discipline. Philosophy pursues questions that have stimulated thinkers in different eras and cultures. How should we live? What do we owe each other? How should we reason, and weigh evidence? What is it to be a person? There are classic answers to these questions, but new ones are always being proposed and debated. Studying philosophy develops skills in reasoning and communication; students develop crucial skills of articulation, critical thinking, intellectual independence, and the ability to understand others' viewpoints and assumptions.
