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.

Many congratulations to Dr. Katherina Kinzel, Fulbright Postdoc in the Philosophy Department this past fall who was just hired as an Assistant Professor at Utrecht, the Netherlands. We hope that Katharina will stay in touch with the Department at Temple and be back before too long!

Every year, the College of Liberal Arts recognizes five outstanding members of our teaching faculty with the Teaching Awards. The ceremony, held over everyone’s favorite video conferencing app, looked a little different this year, but the faculty’s accomplishments were as impressive as ever. Perhaps even more so given the extraordinary conditions they had to overcome.
