The philosophy major is intended to give students a focused grounding in the history and practice of philosophy as part of their broader education in the humanities at Antioch College. Following the dictum laid down by Socrates that the unexamined life is not worth living, philosophy majors will examine fundamental topics such as the nature of justice, being, political community, reality, and the best way of life. Philosophy majors will learn to develop and support their own views with clarity, and they will connect their work in philosophy with ideas and methodologies from other disciplines through the 210 series of courses in philosophy, literature, and history.
