Description: 

Every Henry Ford Community College student has the opportunity to reach beyond training to achieve a
comprehensive quality education. Philosophy is the love of wisdom. Wisdom is based on knowledge and
insight, not on preferences or subjective beliefs. HFCCs sequence of courses in philosophy is academically
designed to develop critical and creative thinking skills, and to encourage intellectual integrity in the pursuit of
objective methods of confirmation or disconfirmation of beliefs. HFCCs philosophy courses challenge
serious students to engage in focused inquiry, to expose fallacious reasoning, and to develop sensitive
approaches to understanding, evaluating, deciding, or acting in any area of significant human concern.
There are no prerequisites for any philosophy course. The intellectual life begins and ends with philosophy.
