Philosophy sharpens the mind's ability to think—to analyze, evaluate, criticize, and interpret. It sharpens the tongue's ability to argue—to create rationally strong arguments and to recognize weak ones. It heightens the soul's capacity to wonder—to imagine, to speculate, and to envision. These three abilities—to think clearly, to argue persuasively, and to envision possibilities—are always in demand in the world of work. Here they are developed in courses organized around a specific theme, key thinkers, or a historical period in western and world philosophy.
