Digging Deep into Philosophy

Student commenting in a Philosophy class

Explore the fundamental questions about ourselves and our place in society and the world.


We at Regis see ourselves as continuing a conversation that has been handed down to us from a number of historical traditions, Eastern and Western, and we see ourselves as having the privilege of expanding this conversation, critically evaluating it, and in turn handing it on to our students as a form of possibility, empowerment, and challenge. The practice of philosophy is also not unrelated to what our colleagues in other disciplines engage in--in that the subjects philosophy examines may be scientific, cultural, historical, or political in nature--with the possible addition that we see it as our task to examine critically the criteria for "making sense" that those other disciplines as well as our own employ. Thus we engage different conceptions of the self and its possibilities for knowledge and freedom, the real and the presence or absence of hints of transcendence, the moral and aesthetic good for individuals, cultures, and political entities, and the meaning of each of those parts as well as the whole of things.

In connection with our Ethics, Politics, and Society minor, the Philosophy Department has developed the Practicum course as an opportunity for students to bring together their heads, their hearts, and their hands. Practicum combines a variety of readings with a student-developed, semester-long project integrating community-based and service learning with philosophical education.
