Our Goals

For our students to gain a detailed understanding, sophisticated appreciation and critical awareness:
 
1. … of the nature and complexity of human thought, of its critical and creative possibilities, and of the longstanding
        and continuing contributions (and reactions) to central defining moments in world civilization;
 
2. … of the core problems, issues, and approaches, first delineated and associated with philosophical inquiry,
        and of the ways in which different (sometimes unstated) assumptions shape, determine and constrain fields of
        human inquiry; 
 
3. … of the possible ramifications and innate complexity of even basic philosophical ideas, and the ability to
        adjudge and evaluate such notions in light of the purposive aspects of human existence.
