Mark Hébert, Chair
The Greek term “philosophy” often is translated as “love of wisdom.” Attaining wisdom is the pursuit of a lifetime. Our goal at Austin College is to help students begin that pursuit. This endeavor entails providing a basic understanding of key philosophical issues in ethics, logic, epistemology, metaphysics, etc., and the critical thinking skills necessary to deliberate clearly about these issues.
The mission of program is to help students develop interpretive, analytical and reflective skills in philosophy. The curriculum provides students with a wide range of topics in ethics, metaphysics, logic, and epistemology.
