The Department of Philosophy at the University of Montana is dedicated to a search for understanding how the world as a whole hangs together and of how we are to assume our place in the world. The faculty and students engage with the study of philosophy in a historical context, including the heritage of great philosophical texts, and they use these texts in conversation with contemporary problems. The Department of Philosophy also turns to the contemporary world directly and tries to illuminate and advance its concerns with ethics, art, science and technology, ecology, feminism, law, and medicine. Research and creative scholarship by the faculty of the Department of Philosophy at the University of Montana includes studies in continental philosophy, epistemology, aesthetics, ethics and political philosophy, the philosophy of language, the philosophy of mind, and the philosophy of sciences.
