Details

Philosophy has always asked the "big questions" about our lives. These are questions, for example, about the limits of our knowledge, the best way that humans can live together, how we understand the world around us, and what is the good life. A philosophy major at Western Sydney University will enable students to develop particular skills and attributes - such as clear thinking, capacities to assess arguments and values, sound understanding of important philosophical views - that have always been essential to university scholarship, and which continue to be valuable for graduates in both public and private life.
