The topic for the 2014 BRIAN GRANT UNDERGRADUATE ESSAY CONTEST has been announced and should garner a lot of interest in view of current world events. "How valuable is democracy? What, if anything, would be wrong with rule by enlightened despots?" The contest is open to undergraduate students registered in any faculty at the University of Calgary.

In philosophy these days, no issue is more heatedly debated than diversity. “Philosophy has a real diversity problem,” says Megan Delehanty, an assistant philosophy professor and the principal grant holder for the University of Calgary Teaching and Learning Grants project, Diversifying Our Syllabi.  

We congratulate the following graduates for Fall 2016 Convocation: Ricky Hon (MA), Walter Reid (MA), Niall Roe (MA), Aaron Beauchene (BA Hons), Brandie Hesse (BA), Juan Panlilio (BA), Elena Tumasz-Jordan (BA Hons), Tiffany Sostar (WMST BA Hons). Fall Convocation Ceremonies will be held Thursday, November 10. CONGRATULATIONS and BEST WISHES to you all!

What kind of a job can a philosophy PhD get you? Quite an interesting one, says Robert Armstrong, a PhD candidate at the University of Calgary.  

Congratulations to Jared Craig, recipient of a SSHRC Doctoral Fellowship, and to three others who received a CGS Masters Award. 

What is the ultimate nature of reality? What does it take to know how the world works? How should we construct a just society? And how can we lead good lives?

Philosophy draws on and contributes to work in a variety of disciplines — linguistics, psychology, computer science, religious studies, biology, physics, and sociology — to investigate these questions. Philosophers develop practical reasoning and writing skills that lead to success in graduate school, business school, law school, medical school, and beyond.
