The minor in philosophy is designed to offer students the opportunity to receive rigorous academic training in the three major areas of philosophical inquiry, i.e., the history of philosophy, practical inquiry into issues of ethics and politics, and theoretical inquiry into issues of knowledge, mind, and reality. In view of the unique historical legacy of Macao, the proposed program will place a particular emphasis on comparative themes, especially the philosophical dialogues between the Western and Eastern traditions.
