Folsom Lake College Philosophy

Philosophy is the logical examination of the fundamental issues people have pondered for over 2,500 years. What is reality and what is beauty? What is knowledge and truth? What is good and just? Does human existence have meaning and does God exist? Folsom Lake College's philosophy program is directed toward understanding these questions in their historical and cultural contexts and applying insights to contemporary life. Rigorous philosophical study will also improve one’s critical thinking skills.
