We embrace a variety of approaches to philosophical study and consider the breadth of our faculty expertise to be one of the advantages of our degree programs. Our research and teaching strengths include both continental and analytical perspectives, legal and political philosophy and ethics as well as epistemology and metaphysics, and strength in the history of philosophy from ancient through modern to twentieth-century thought.
