Philosophy - MA

Program Overview

The MA program in Philosophy emphasizes the importance of the study of the history of philosophy as the main avenue for both appreciating the plurality of positions it has given rise to and for the sake of cultivating the methodological versatility and patience such pluralism calls for in the 21st Century. 

Accordingly, our program historically gives students a unique opportunity to explore the common roots, interconnections and conceptual boundaries between Islamic and Western schools of philosophical speculation, while at the same time systematically fostering the dialogue between the logical rigor and scientific naturalism advocated by the tradition of Analytic Philosophy, on the one hand, and the depth of systematic accounts of human experience offered in the German Idealist, Pragmatist and Phenomenological traditions, on the other hand.
