Global Sustainable Development (GSD) encompasses a network of complex challenges that require innovative thought and practical answers. By studying Philosophy and GSD, you will be encountering how thinkers of the past developed new modes of thought in response to the problems of their time. Today, global inequality, food security, and potentially irreversible changes in our environment demand new ways of thinking. As you study with the Philosophy Department, you will learn about key ethical theories and critical concepts such as biopower and existentialism, and develop vital skills of reasoning and communicating. Meanwhile, with GSD, you will take an interdisciplinary approach as you confront the Big Questions facing our world today and consider practical solutions to these problems.
