Mission Statement:

Philosophy is the historical foundation of all academic disciplines and continues to address the most fundamental and relevant questions of human existence, the meaning, the nature, and the morality of ourselves and the world around us. Central to philosophy is the development of careful and clear reasoning and related skills in research, writing, commu­nication, and creativity. It is the mission of the Department of Philosophy at Millsaps College to provide our students with thorough training in reason­ing, to provide a solid education in the history of philosophy and its core concerns and techniques, and to support the development of a critical commitment to the search for meaning and truth.
