Social Philosophy

The social philosophy courses cover a wide range of philosophical issues, both present and past; but common to them all is an interest in social, political and ethical issues, especially in terms of how such issues relate to everyday contemporary life.

These classes approach philosophy as a means to rethink or think through some of the most controversial and seemingly impenetrable issues of our time.
