Philosophy is the oldest academic discipline, exploring the fundamental nature of reality and of knowledge, and asking the basic questions of ethics and politics.
Philosophers seek to understand the coherence of our views as a whole, putting our ordinary beliefs and the results of the sciences into a common pattern, and as a result philosophy is foundational to many other disciplines.
A distinctive feature of philosophy at UTAS is that you can study Easter as well as Western philosophical traditions. The focus on rigorous thinking and logical analysis in philosophy make its study an excellent way to enhance your critical reading, reasoning and writing skills.
