Among the liberal, intellectual disciplines, philosophy is the one that raises introspective questions regarding the most important and fundamental issues confronted in life and then out answers. This is why an individual who constantly doubts and explores issues regarding human beings, history, and the world is destined to be philosophical. Since philosophy at Hanshin University has its roots in freedom, the discipline is not only rich but also pluralistic and progressive.

A balanced curriculum encompassing both eastern and western philosophies and Korean ideas allows students to take advantage of a comprehensive learning opportunity and encounter a variety of philosophical schools, principles and arguments with an open and critical mind.

Academic Goals

Through a pluralistic approach that does not adhere to one particular thinking system or philosopher, from either the East or West, and by learning diverse ideas and theories in a critical and open manner, students are encouraged to make contributions to the development of philosophy in a creative fashion and serve as a vanguard in establishing a rational society.
