Courses in this minor challenge students to articulate the foundations of their beliefs, judgments, and choices, to subject their implicit commitments to critical analysis, to reevaluate their values, and to pursue an examined life that is worth living. In a world inundated by banal information, philosophers are lovers of radical wisdom who approach life with the courage of their own convictions.
A minimum of four courses, 16 credits, are required for the minor, at least two of which must be taken at Emerson. Students select courses from the list below and must include at least one course at the 300 or 400 level. In addition to any PH course, students may elect to use HS 202 : Sophomore Honors Seminar toward the Philosophy minor.
