Philosophy – the pursuit of wisdom – deals systematically with values and concepts central to our lives as individuals and social beings. Philosophy explores the rational bases of other areas of inquiry such as science, social science, politics, and religion. Philosophy facilitates the development of valuable, advanced skills in constructing and analyzing arguments, reading and writing critically and with precision, and approaching problems imaginatively and reflectively.
