Department Statement

The Philosophy Department at California State University, East Bay seeks to promote the exploration of enduring human concerns - concerns, for example, about the nature of knowledge, ethics, truth, and God. In addition to emphasizing classical philosophy, the department encourages students to think critically about contemporary debates, particularly in the areas of law, human rights and social justice; science, technology, and values; and religion. We strive to instill in our students lifelong habits of questioning, of exploring views contrary to their own, and of engaging in reasoned and honest dialogue. By our focus on analysis, comprehension and communication, we aim to develop qualities that are essential to personal fulfillment, civic responsibility, and career success.
