Philosophy seeks answers to such fundamental questions as: What is ultimately real? What is the nature and extent of our knowledge? What is the source and nature of our moral obligations? What form of government is the best? Is beauty only in the eye of the beholder? The aim of the Philosophy program of Rutgers University is to assist students in developing an appreciation of the various answers to these questions and in formulating their own answers in a way that can be defended in the arena of reasoned controversy.
Philosophy draws on material from all areas of human endeavor -- science, the arts, religion, politics. Many of our students are double majors because they find that the study of philosophy and the study of the particular discipline (such as psychology or biology) are mutually enhancing.
