Summary

In the study of philosophy and the philosophical tradition, students enter into a conversation with some of history’s greatest minds. This is, in itself, a tremendously enriching experience. But it pays the even greater dividend of helping us shape our views on such fundamental issues as love and friendship, art and science, justice and community, politics and religion, meaning itself.

Why study Philosophy at Bishop’s?

In Philosophy, lasting and adequate understanding comes when the materials of study are brought to life. This requires both patience and creativity on the part of professors, engagement and self-reliance on the part of students. The Bishop’s experience in Philosophy is designed to foster all of these things. Classes are small (seldom larger than 15 students after the first year). Many operate in the seminar format attentive to the particular interests of members, focused on primary sources and designed to invite students to take a leadership role in presenting their own work. Our students graduate from Bishop’s having studied closely great works of thought, having learned how to communicate subtle and difficult ideas to others, having gained extensive experience in technical writing, argumentation and public speaking. They go on to challenging careers in university, college, school and language teaching, law, international aid, filmmaking, business and other fields.

Program strengths

Study with Professors who develop their research programs and interests with you in the classroom and for whom, accordingly, student input is of paramount importance.

Work closely with other students seriously engaged in developing their own philosophical projects.

Take courses featuring study of very challenging primary sources framed in discussion, collegial problem-solving and engaged conversation.

In addition, these students will be required to write an Honors thesis (Philosophy 401, 6 credits). A minor consists of any 24 credits in philosophy.
