Contact: Professor David Schummer

Philosophy deals with the questions raised by people as they attempt to understand life and the world in which they live. The philosophy courses at Pitt-Bradford explore ways of thinking about such questions using the writings of philosophers, past and present, as guides and challenges. Philosophy examines methods of logical argumentation and critical thinking, particularly as they apply to moral issues and to ultimate issues such as the meaning of life and the reality of God.
