What is philosophy? Why study it?

College students are people who are probing for real answers to the deep questions that shape our lives. The deepest questions are always philosophical. Philosophy involves thorough responses to the deepest questions: What is reality really? How do I know what I know? What is right, good, and beautiful? What does it mean to be human? Responses to these questions always shape individuals as well as whole cultures and times. They impact every single field of study and work. You can't avoid these questions; you can choose to respond to them poorly or responsibly. To respond responsibly, it is important to study philosophy. Geneva College offers a philosophy major or minor, while encouraging all students to take as many philosophy courses as possible.

Philosophy is perhaps the only course of study that you don't learn in high school. Few students have been given the conceptual tools they need to think through their own questions that matter most. No matter what your vocational track, it is more important to know how to live than how to make a living. 

And if you want excellence in your preparation in any professional area of study and work, you have to bring philosophical preparedness to that subject’s foundational commitments and theories.

Christian believers, of all people, should be experts at philosophy. Christianity integrally involves the deepest questions. Developing a responsible philosophical awareness is essential to faithful Christian practice, service and scholarship. Plus, Christians as part of their mission to the world must engage ideas that shape culture. This is strategic witness.
