Philosophy at McGill

Philosophy, as a particular way of thinking, emphasizes clarity in expression, both written and oral, and rigor in argument. Philosophical questions are intriguing and complex, and so the philosophical method stresses thoroughness and intellectual generosity — the willingness and ability to grasp another's arguments and respond to them.
