The study of philosophy involves both understanding how philosophers of the past have approached a variety of philosophical problems and understanding how a single set of related philosophical problems could be approached in a variety of different ways. Students study both the history and the problems of philosophy.  Contact: Amy E. Wendling, Chair of Philosophy
