Philosophy

Welcome to the University of Wisconsin Colleges Philosophy Department.

Philosophy pursues the big questions: Why am I here? Who am I? Does God exist?  At the same time, philosophy investigates specific questions of immediate concern: Is nanotechnology morally permissible? Is the war in Afghanistan just? Is the use of steroids in sport wrong?

The Philosophy Department offers courses addressing these questions and many more.  We hope to see you in class.
