Philosophy News

College of Liberal Arts Philosophy students are challenged by their professors to explore life’s biggest questions about god, health, disease, free will and more. Here, we explore the big questions about the lives and academic and professional careers of our students, alumni and faculty. Read their stories and contact us if you have a Temple Philosophy story that needs to be shared. The program is locally rooted in the cultural center that is Philadelphia, but its global reach touches European and Greek philosophy and so much more. Follow along as the Department of Philosophy scrutinizes life’s great mysteries in pursuit of greater answers.

Congratulations to graduate student Joshua Cutts, who has just published his article "Herbert Marcuse and False Needs," in the Journal Social Theory and Practice.

Congratulation to Lee-Ann Chae who has just published her article "Hoping for Peace" with The Auralasian Journal of Philosophy.
