The goal of the philosophy program at Beloit College is to help our students develop the capacities for reflection, reason, judgment, and expression that lead to a meaningful and responsible life. We aim to meet this goal by engaging philosophical texts and arguments that help us to evaluate what we think and how we live.

Philosophy classes are opportunities for dialogue with each other, with philosophical traditions, and with other disciplines. Through both writing and discussion, students should expect to develop their capacity to raise important questions, to engage in respectful yet critical discourse with others, and to live significant, purposeful, and accountable lives.
