The Faculty and Graduate Students in the Department of Philosophy emphasize the continuous publication of new research in philosophy in the forms of books and journals and engage together in active research programs. The Department also plans and hosts numerous conferences and speakers each year (e.g. the Philosophy Colloquium, Bradley Lectures in Speculative Metaphysics, the Bi-Annual Graduate Conference).

The research clusters below represent areas of research strength and focus. The wide range of research interests among our faculty allows students various possibilities for pursuing projects involving joint supervision or international resarch exchanges.
