Philosophy explores fundamental and important questions such as ‘What is consciousness?’, ‘Are we free agents?’, ‘What makes an action right or wrong?’, ‘How should we live?’, ‘What is truth?’ and ‘Can we reconcile the scientific picture of the world with our ordinary experience?’

Philosophy has a complex relationship to other disciplines: it draws on results from those disciplines and sometimes creates and then spins off whole new disciplines; but always, Philosophy formulates and explores questions that are of fundamental importance to us as human beings and which no other discipline is equipped to answer.

Philosophy is a very broad subject, and in a Philosophy major at Sydney you will have the opportunity to range widely across this subject and to dig deeply into particular issues that interest you.
