Support the Department of Philosophy

Philosophy provides a transferable skill, one that can be used in many walks of life.  It provides training in thinking rationally that cannot be obtained elsewhere and it gives students a general training in thinking and writing clearly.  It also provides experience in problem solving, in thinking critically, and in thinking laterally.  Both ethics and logic are part of philosophy, and most people will face significant ethical questions in the course of their work and would do better in their work if they thought logically.

Studying the history of philosophy is also essential to the understanding of the history of ideas and the history of culture.  Perhaps Socrates was going a little far in suggesting that the unexamined life was not worth living, but it is surely true that an examined life will be all the better for it.
