Department of Philosophy


Philosophy studies the foundation of values while examining the nature of justice, knowledge and reality, and setting the mind to work with accuracy and imagination. Students in the UB Department of Philosophy learn the fundamental theories that frame our intellectual heritage, and master the essential tools for investigating and developing ideas that shaped our lives in the past and continue to do so today.
