Philosophy focuses on fundamental questions concerning the nature of reality, knowledge and values: metaphysics seeks to understand the true nature of reality in general and of humankind in particular, logic and epistemology endeavor to determine valid method of reasoning and the limits and criteria of knowledge; and ethics attempts to formulate the basic moral norms by which our choices and actions should be governed. Through the study of philosophy, students can improve their understanding of themselves and the world in which they live; they can increase their command of intellectually responsible methods of establishing and evaluating beliefs and theories; and they can develop more effective ways of determining their moral duties.
In general, the study of philosophy helps develop the ability to think clearly. If one understands how to think clearly, one can apply the techniques of critical and constructive thinking to the study of any discipline or to the concerns of any occupation. The department curriculum provides an opportunity for all students, whether majoring in philosophy or not, to be educated in the methods of critical and constructive thought through reflection on the fundamental presuppositions of knowledge in general and of individual disciplines such as art, mathematics, religions and science in particular. Genuine philosophy by its nature is dialectical; various points of view are brought into critical contact, their assumptions critically assessed, their connections and implications explored. This is the central task of the philosophical enterprise.
