This collection represents a sample of faculty work from the Department of Philosophy. The faculty has extensive knowledge of the philosophers of ancient Greece and the developments in this dialogue that has extended across the centuries in philosophical traditions developed in Europe, northern Africa, and Asia. Philosophy is a living subject as well, pressing now as much as ever for answers to its central questions. Therefore the department's faculty also presents the best contemporary thinking, upon a foundation of established works from the past.
