Philosophical inquiry aims at uncovering, analyzing, and evaluating the fundamental values and assumptions implicit in various human activities and practices such as science, the arts, religion, morality, and social and political institutions. Its ultimate goal is to develop a coherent view of the world and our place in it. Philosophy focuses on sharpening the ability to analyze, reason, and write effectively.
