What makes an action morally right or wrong? What is free will, and do we possess it? What is the nature of knowledge? What is the relation between the mind and the body? What makes a political system just? Does God exist? If you have ever worried about these questions, we invite you to join us in the philosophy department.
With a dozen faculty and over 100 student majors, we have traditionally been one of the strongest disciplines at Colgate. Because of our size, we are able to offer a wide range of courses that cover the whole breadth of our discipline and its historical roots.
