Memorial's Department of Philosophy offers a thriving intellectual community where students are invited to explore the nature and problems of human existence and human thought. The interests of the Philosophy faculty are wide-ranging with a particular concentration in the historical aspects of philosophy. Considerable expertise exists in ethical and political philosophy, logic, metaphysics, and epistemology, as well as in the philosophy of science, the philosophy of religion, the philosophy of mind, phenomenology, existentialism, aesthetics, and hermeneutics.
The Department encourages student participation in regular discussion groups and colloquia. Recent guest lecturers featured in the Department's international speakers series include Richard Rorty (University of Virginia), Jane Heal (Cambridge), Günter Wohlfart (Wuppertal), Carl Hausman (Pennsylvania State), Th. C. W. Oudemans (Leiden), Daniel Dennett (TUFTS), Gunther Mensching (Hannover), Guy Debrock (Nijmegen), and Roland Faber (Vienna).
The MA program in Philosophy has a strong emphasis on writing. The program is designed so that it may be completed in one academic year (three semesters) of full-time study. The program can also be taken part time, in which case completion is longer.
