Philosophy is an activity; a pursuit or a striving for knowledge. Knowledge could be of one’s surroundings (Natural Philosophy), about ourselves (Philosophy of Mind), about our political systems (Political Philosophy), about our ways of reasoning (Logic), about the way we ought to act (Ethics). Although one of the oldest disciplines, philosophy never ages as a result of being unrestrictive and self-reflectiive. As long as there are thinking individuals, there will be Philosophy.
As part of our Philosophical quest we’ll ask questions from across the Philosophical spectrum, listen to what great thinkers have had to say about these issues and will offerour own ideas, insights, thoughts and arguments. Our philosophical explorations will expose us to various ways of thinking about the world, knowledge, science, religion, art and life itself.
Philosophy is offered as both, a major and a minor at SSLA. For it to actually run as either a major or a minor for a particular batch, at least eight students from that batch need to opt for it at the time of choosing their major and minor at the end of their second semester.
