Program Strengths

The philosophy department at Notre Dame combines pluralism with a commitment to the clarity and rigor of analytic philosophy. It is also marked by an enduring sense that philosophy is not simply about the narrower questions that occasionally seem to preoccupy academic philosophy and thus strives to maintain a balance between professionalism and the exploration of those bigger questions that have been philosophy's traditional concern. Particular areas of strength include the history of philosophy (in all areas, from ancient through medieval and early modern and Kantian and post-Kantian philosophy to 20th century analytic and Continental philosophy), metaphysics, epistemology, logic, philosophy of action, philosophy of religion, philosophy of science, and philosophy of mathematics.
