Department of Philosophy

The Philosophy program at South Florida aims to produce teachers and scholars with a deep understanding of philosophy and a broad knowledge of its history. We welcome a diversity of approaches to the study of philosophy, including analytic, continental, historical, literary, and multicultural. Above all, we seek to prepare our students to make contributions in their areas of expertise and to become responsible members of the philosophical community. Our department has historical and systematic interests. We are particularly committed to four general areas:
  • History of Philosophy
  • Continental Philosophy
  • History and Philosophy of Science
  • Ethics, Social and Political, and Feminist Philosophy
