Philosophy is unique in its methods and in the nature and breadth of its subject matter. Philosophy treats questions touching every dimension of human life, and its techniques apply to problems in any field of study or endeavor. Philosophy is, among other things, an inquiry into the existence of fundamental truths, a quest for clarity, and a study of principles of conduct. Philosophy encourages the systematic questioning of one's most deeply held beliefs, enhances one's ability to perceive the relationships among the various other fields of study, and deepens one's sense of the meaning of human experience. In short, philosophy lies at the core of the Liberal Arts.
