Philosophy explores fundamental issues about truth, logic, ethics, and human nature. The ability to think carefully and logically is a skill that prepares you for success in any career by expanding your view of the world and helping you make sound, well-reasoned decisions. Learn more with the Philosophy program of Heidelberg University.


Explore the sub-fields of philosophy such as aesthetics (the nature of beauty, definition of art), metaphysics (the nature of reality, what sort of things exist), epistemology (theories of knowledge), ethics (defining concepts of right action, obligation, justice), and logic (principles of reasoning) with the Philosophy program of Heidelberg University. You’ll be sought after for your ability to analyze and discuss the important and difficult issues and problems of our time.

Philosophy enhances critical thinking, engenders ethical awareness and provides opportunity for the analysis and discussion of important and difficult issues and problems. The skills associated with the study of philosophy are highly valued by the legal and medical professions, government, education, business and many other areas of our society.
