Southwestern College

The practical reason for studying philosophy is to acquire a very valuable set of skills. In philosophy the student becomes the active inquirer, thinker, and solver of problems and not just a passive learner who memorizes ideas. Philosophy develops skills of critical and moral thinking, argumentation, information management, research, communication, abstract reasoning, and analytic and synthetic thinking. Students of philosophy also learn to identify important fundamental questions about themselves and their world through the process of clear, critical thinking and argumentation.
