Welcome to Department of Philosophy & Psychology


2.  General Information


Philosophy is an activity of critical inquiry and a comprehensive process of thought. It involves testing and evaluating various positions, uncovering assumptions and examining philosophical systems. Philosophy, being a rational inquiry, sharpens our thinking, enriches our understanding and expands our intellectual horizons. While accepting this we understand that it is not only conceptual discipline but it is also a moral side of social science. Studying of it not only develops our reasoning and thinking but also develops skills of argumentation to deal with controversial issues. The value of philosophy lies in fact that it encourages intellectual values like open mindedness and tolerance of different opinions. Whatever way you look at it, philosophy can supplement and compliment your other studies.
