About Philosophy & Religious Studies at Rollins

Socrates said, "the unexamined life is not worth living." The disciplines of philosophy and religion examine our lives by investigating the most basic concepts and categories of our self-understanding: true and false, right and wrong, real and imaginary, sacred and profane.


Philosophy students at Rollins explore the ideas of great thinkers from Plato and Aristotle to Kant and Nietzsche. Thematic courses range from ethics and social philosophy to the mind-body problem.
