From epistemology and metaphysics, to bioethics and the history of philosophy, our research spans a large domain and straddles disciplines.

Our faculty areas of research and expertise are:

  • Ancient Greek philosophy and moral education
  • Clinical bioethics
  • Ethical realism
  • Baruch Spinoza and physical science
  • Philosophy of religion

We also boast strong ties with departments and programs across the University, including the Medical Center, the Center for Language Sciences, the department of religion and classics, and the program in public health.

The recently created Humanities Center supports multidisciplinary engagement around literature, history, the arts, and philosophies of cultures past and present with the aim of fostering educated, contributing global citizens.
