What is the nature of knowledge, justice, reality, goodness, beauty, and truth? What is real? What actions are morally just? Understanding and grappling with these questions and other philosophical topics encourages critical thinking in the tradition of logic and analysis. Philosophy majors at Principia College read and study the ideas of philosophers, religious thinkers and political leaders. Equally important, they learn how to be philosophers themselves.
