Philosophy Department

The Philosophy Department at Davidson aims to provide you with a systematic approach to foundational questions, an approach that stresses clarity and attention to detail. We equip students with the skills to:

  • Reason carefully and critically
  • Express themselves clearly in writing and speaking
  • Think creatively and constructively about difficult, abstract problems
  • Detect and debunk fallacious reasoning and superficial, facile solutions
  • Identify and evaluate their own beliefs

If you are a current philosophy major, be sure to check out our Resources page for helpful information on how to write philosophy papers, graduate schools in philosophy, informative blogs, and philosophical associations.

If you are a prospective philosophy major, please visit our major and minor page.
