Studying philosophy can help you develop the habits of thinking, writing, and communicating needed to navigate successfully the complex realities of professional, social, and personal life. Our students learn to critically analyze prevailing values, norms, and institutions, and to imagine and create flourishing lives and communities.
The EMU Philosophy Section joins the American Philosophical Association in unequivocally condemning all forms of racist violence and white supremacy. We are pained and outraged at the countless incidents of police brutality and injustice toward Black people both recently and throughout the history of the United States, and we stand against the structural and institutional racism that enables these actions. We reaffirm our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion in our discipline. As philosophers, scholars, teachers and learners, we have a responsibility to work toward a better, more just society.
