Philosophy has to do with how we value ourselves as human beings

and how we look at ourselves and how we relate to reality – Grace Lee Boggs

The study of philosophy begins with questions that are as personal as they are universal: What can I know? How should I live? Who am I? What am I? How am I connected to the world around me?

As a student, you are invited into a community of inquirers to reflect on fundamental questions of human existence through engaging with Philosophy’s diverse traditions and major thinkers. Philosophy students learn to think critically about the world, to call into question biases and unwarranted assumptions, and to pursue an “examined life.”

While rape and debasement of women are not new, the use of social media to do so
is. Whereas in the past, pornographic pictures were produced for mass consumption but sold privately, even wrapped in brown paper and sold only to adults, now the Internet is filled with pornography and creepshots of women. Rapists hamming for the camera, and taking creepshots of unsuspecting unconscious girls, are part and parcel of the sexual assault in the age of social media.
