Philosophy at El Paso Community College

 

Philosophy is the discipline concerned with questions of how one should live (ethics); what sorts of things exist and what are their essential natures (metaphysics); what counts as genuine knowledge (epistemology); and the reasons why humans create & consider things beautiful (aesthetics). The word is of Greek origin: φιλοσοφία (philosophía), meaning love of knowledge.
