Program Scope
Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy. Philosophy is traditionally defined as the love of wisdom, the ability to think well about the foundations of human action, the nature of reality, and the purposes and priorities of life. The department offers the opportunity for a systematic study of the philosophies of past and present, of East and West, a study that deepens and broadens one's outlook on the world and on human affairs, and thus provides a more secure basis on which to develop one's own philosophy. The enterprise of philosophy requires sharpening the skills necessary for clarifying premises, uncovering presuppositions (one's own and those of others), weighing the pros and cons of conflicting values, and analyzing concepts and issues. Courses in philosophy are frequently designed to help develop or increase these skills, a task that is sometimes more manageable if a restriction of attention is placed on a limited area of thought. Many of the courses concentrate on specific issues. Others are designed to provide an analytic and scholarly overview of an entire area or period. The department welcomes students from other majors or programs who wish to examine their own personal philosophy, investigate the philosophies of others, or sharpen their skills as independent thinkers.

To explain why these are good and bad patterns of reasoning in all or some contexts. To give you practice in spotting the bad and using the good patterns. To help you transfer these into your other classes and everyday life. To encourage you to foster critical thinking in all you come in contact with. Course Focus: This is a course on thinking critically. Critical thinking is the reasoned pursuit of well-supported beliefs, decisions, and actions. In this pursuit we depend upon intellectual honesty, clarity about what we are saying and thinking, good sources of information, careful reasoning, and the persistence needed to avoid mistakes while coming to a well-supported stopping place. Notice that I said “stopping place.”

Philosophy Department "The unexamined life is not worth living." Socrates
"He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that." Mill
Philosophy is the examination of ideas and the evaluation of first principles. In addition to studying its own traditional areas such as ethics, logic, metaphysics and epistemology, philosophy investigates other disciplines by critically reviewing their foundations and methods. Philosophy helps us free ourselves from dogmatic or unreflective habits of mind. It instills habits of intellectual integrity, impartiality, and rationality. Philosophy enlarges our conception of what is possible and enriches our intellectual imagination. Accordingly, philosophy is an essential ingredient of any sound education.
Besides providing individual courses, the Philosophy Department offers a well-rounded minor in philosophy. The minor provides an introduction to ethics, logic, and the history of philosophy. It also helps students develop crucial intellectual skills such as critical thinking, logical reasoning, and conceptual analysis; in short, it helps students learn to think for themselves. Emphasis is balanced between philosophical content and the cultivation of philosophical thinking. Minne Hall, Room 329

"Critical Thinking is the best intro to logic software around. I think the exercises are good, so deep,...and the course as a whole looks great." "Kevin Possin (Winona State University) has developed a program for students in critical thinking courses with an aim of giving them as much assisted practice as they need to master informal logic skills....Having sampled the program, I say that this project should be...put into the hands of as many...undergraduate students as possible.

Approaches to Critical Thinking
Dr. Charles Ess - Drury University Outline:
Here are some basic steps in critically analyzing arguments...
a) break down the argument into premise/conclusion form. Is there an argument - i.e., a conclusion based on/supported by other claims offered as premises b) if an argument is present - what sort of argument? Deductive or inductive If the argument is deductive : does it follow valid (e.g., modus ponens modus tollens ) or invalid affirming the consequent denying the antecedent ) structure? If its structure is valid - does it avoid other sorts of fallacies, e.g., equivocation fallacy of accident ad hominem , etc.? (For additional fallacies, including explanations and examples, click here If the argument is inductive , does it avoid the various fallacies of inductive arguments (fallacies of relevance straw man questionable cause hasty generalization hasty conclusion slippery slope questionable statistics unrepresentative sample unknowable fact , etc.)?

Discussion Forum Do you have an opinion about this page? Make it known on the Discussion Forum Philosophy is not the same as "life" - on the other hand, almost any other definition would seem to narrow. So just how are we supposed to approach the subject? It must be possible, otherwise no one would even be able to begin a study of philosophy. Or can they? In fact, the study of philosophy often doesn't begin with a solid definition of the subject - instead, it seems easier to define philosophy by doing philosophy. Yet attempts at definition and explanation are nevertheless important.
