Philosophy as a discipline reflects both speculatively and critically on the world, our actions, and our claims to knowledge. It pays special attention to questions and problems that other fields neglect or may be unable to resolve. The Department of Philosophy at Vassar College offers a variety of courses of study that not only familiarize students with the great philosophical achievements of the past and present, but also aim to teach them how to think, write, and speak philosophically themselves.
