Philosophy wrestles with fundamental questions in all areas of human knowledge and activity. Such questions include: How does knowledge differ from mere belief? Do I determine my actions or are they determined by causes other than myself? Is my mind different from my body? What makes an action right? What makes a life good? What makes a society just? What makes a work of art beautiful? Struggling with and developing reasoned views about such issues enlarge one's capacity for clear thinking, effective writing, and persuasive speaking. Philosophy encourages the intellectual curiosity necessary for a life of sustained inquiry and cultivates a taste for matters of importance over matters of show. Moreover, philosophy's preference for rational persuasion over compulsion prepares one for responsible citizenship in a diverse nation and world
