About Us

We are one half of the Department of Linguistics and Philosophy, established in 1977. Our 14 faculty have eclectic interests: apart from the standard fare in ethics, language, mind, and metaphysics, research includes philosophy of action, philosophy of science, feminist philosophy, social philosophy, philosophy of cognitive science, philosophy of sex/gender, philosophy of mathematics, philosophy of race, Kant, philosophical logic, decision theory, philosophy of physics, and applied ethics. We have a highly-regarded Ph.D. program with about 25 graduate students, and a flourishing undergraduate program with options for a philosophy major, minor, or concentration.
