PHILOSOPHY AT STANFORD

 We are a lively community of philosophers engaged in a fascinating range of philosophical research projects. We offer rigorous and competitive graduate and undergraduate programs which both train students in traditional core areas of philosophy and provide them with opportunities to explore oft-neglected subfields such as the philosophy of literature or nineteenth-century German philosophy. We have a very strong focus on the history of philosophy with one of the best programs in Kant studies in the world. Finally, we continue our tradition of being a top research center in logic and the philosophy of science.
