About Philosophy

Philosophy is at the heart of all learning and community life. To broaden and nurture learning and good citizenship in a free democratic society, the HCC philosophy program provides students opportunities to explore and cultivate open, critical ways to understand the search for truth and to examine the moral implications of thinking and action in an increasingly technologically driven multicultural world. These aims are pursued in courses that introduce students to the principles and methods of logic and argument; sound judgment and practical decision-making; and the history of ideas in science, the arts, and religion. Philosophy courses are tailored to the demands of rigorous academic preparation and transfer requirements, workforce training, and lifelong learning interest.
