About the Program

Philosophy, as a form of intellectual inquiry, grapples with time-honored questions that have puzzled thinkers for centuries. Does human life have purpose and meaning? Is there a god? How do we determine right from wrong? What can we actually know and how do we know it? This is but a sampling of such questions. Philosophy students apply reason to such large questions, and, thereby, hone their skills of critical thinking and argumentation. Such generic skills of critical analysis are crucial not just to philosophy, but to today's legal, scientific, government and business arenas. Bloomfield's philosophy program has special strengths in applied ethics, logic and African-American philosophy, among others.
