The vision and mission of FCC, to impart, create and disseminate knowledge, is best encapsulated in the oldest of disciplines: Philosophy. The wisdom of the sages is captured in the branches of Metaphysics and Epistemology; the application of this sagacity is developed by the branches of Logic and Ethics. The wide diversity of theories and applications is complemented by an in-depth study of specific thinkers from ancient, medieval, modern and contemporary periods. The study of Philosophy is thus the most significant guarantor of critical and creative thinking, and an indispensable requirement of today.
The Department of Philosophy at FCC is relatively new, but its rich tradition of learning and knowledge-seeking is adopted and adapted for contemporary times.
