The Windsor Advantage

Inside the Department

The Philosophy M.A. program features critique and reasoning: Social and political philosophy from a critical theoretical perspective, recent European philosophy, feminist philosophy, environmental philosophy, philosophy of law; reasoning and argumentation, informal logic, epistemology, philosophy of mind, and philosophy of science and technology. Our low teacher-student ratio ensures close interaction and promotes collegiality. In addition to courses and research, students can expand their philosophical understanding by participating in the Department's speakers series.

Each year, students organize a very successful graduate and undergraduate conference (poster for 2019 conference, .pdf format)in the second half of the Winter semester

Around Campus

The Centre for Research in Reasoning, Argumentation and Rhetoric supports individual and collaborative research into the theory and practice of reasoning, argument and argumentation, and rhetoric from the perspective of all related academic disciplines, and for the application and dissemination of this research. The majority of CRRAR's current members are philosophers, and the University of Windsor's Philosophy Department is recognized worldwide as the center of research in informal logic. Philosophy students can also participate in the student-organized Philosophy Club and in the graduate student Feminist Research Group. Instructors often run reading groups in the areas of their research.
