Ian Hillside has had such a week! Nothing seemed to go as planned, but it actually went better than expected!

By Troy Davidson

The Importance of Philosophy

by Adam Kohler
February 1, 2010

The most common question I am asked when discussing my major is, “What can you do with philosophy?” After all, philosophers have been asking the same questions for thousands of years and still have not gotten anywhere, right?
