Philosophy and Logic

Arts faculty studies various dimensions of human life, society, and culture. The direct or indirect contribution of philosophy in the constitution of all these is very great. Seen from this perspective, the study of philosophy is foundational for an overall study of arts faculty. The main objective of this College is to introduce this subject to you and to make you understand its significance.

Philosophy as a subject is mammoth by itself and studying it develops one’s thinking and reasoning about issues of society, human relationship to the human-created environment, and the world around. It develops one’s skills in argumentation. It also helps one to confront the hidden assumptions of other disciplines, and it concretes the foundation of all the disciplines of the present and of the future. Philosophy encourages intellectual values like open-mindedness, tolerance of different opinions, etc.

The department believes that ‘Philosophy responds to intellectual challenges posed by society and by the acquisition and organization of knowledge worldwide. It reflects on current practices in the light of past performances while seeking to develop new perspectives on current problems.’

The objectives of the department are set in tune with this empirical belief
