Philosophy uncovers truths by seeking illuminating concepts, investigating traditions, constructing arguments and testing assumptions, as well as by building, criticizing, and contemplating worldviews. It investigates the nature of goodness, beauty, and justice, and explores the routes by which we and our world might become better and more just.
The Creighton University Department of Philosophy is committed to teaching and scholarship in both the history and problems of philosophy: students must be educated in both in order to grasp the traditions and complexities of their world. This education affords students the basis for integrating what they learn in other disciplines at Creighton University with what they lean throughout their lives. It should, therefore, form a basis for a lifetime of learning.
