Some philosophers address these questions by emphasizing the evaluation of arguments in accordance with deductive and inductive canons of reasoning. Others focus on the analysis of individuals in their historical and social context, as well as the political implications of various philosophical views. 

Learning outcomes

Religious thinkers address these questions from a standpoint of faith in a godhead or a spiritual order of the universe. It is hoped that concentrating in philosophical studies will foster students’ appreciation of the variety, creativity, and elegance of extant responses to the above questions, and help them gain a foundation for formulating their own.

A degree in Philosophical Studies at Bard College at Simon's Rock offers a variety of career opportunities in fields including careers in education, human resources, communications, law, journalism, and social services.
