The Loyola Marymount University Department of Philosophy has a longstanding commitment to excellent teaching, careful advising, and productive scholarship, and is dedicated to providing a collegial and friendly environment conducive to ongoing intellectual development. We encourage both students and faculty to engage in collaborative inquiry and discussion. While the Department as a whole values a strong foundation in the history of philosophy, it is pluralistic in its orientation. The Department is distinguished by its desire to familiarize students with the full range of philosophical traditions and issues: western and eastern, continental and analytic, historical and contemporary. The special interests of our faculty cover a broad range of systematic topics and historical periods, providing resources for a wide variety of specialized studies.
