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.
