Philosophy has its own content and logic which do nothing less than express the reason implicit in the actual worlds of history, religion, art, science and politics. The approach you will find here treats philosophy neither as the handmaiden of professional schools and scientific disciplines nor as a hyper-intellectual cocktail party.
Rather, philosophy courses at Grenfell treat philosophy as telling us something true about humanity and the universe in which we live looking to the the history of philosophy as revealing the rational principles of the epochs of western civilization.
As such philosophy plays an important role within the Division of Arts and especially in the Humanities Programme. Also, Philosophy offers ethics courses in the Environmental Studies Programme, the Environmental Science Programme and the Nursing Programme.
