Why study Philosophy?

Philosophy examines fundamental problems such as the scope and limits of human knowledge, the ultimate constituents of reality, the sources of value and obligation and the nature of correct reasoning. All this began with attempts to answer two deceptively simple questions: What can we know? And how should we live? Philosophy aims not to teach you what to think, but how to think. UQ not only offers students the only accredited philosophy major in Queensland but also provides students with opportunities to study with internationally recognised philosophers in a research-intensive environment, across the breadth of the discipline. Emphasizing the key role that critical thinking plays in a healthy society, the major equips students to participate more fully in leadership roles in the broader community.
