The Philosophy Department at Saint Louis University is distinguished by a long-standing tradition of pluralism both of methodology and interest. We have faculty members working in the history of philosophy from antiquity through the present, as well as in most areas of contemporary Analytic and Continental European philosophy. The department offers an intellectual environment in which students may pursue advanced studies in a wide range of philosophical topics and methods-systematic, analytic, and historical.
In recent years, the department has gained national and international recognition in medieval philosophy, philosophy of religion, action theory, epistemology, and socio-political philosophy. The Department offers courses of study terminating in B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. degrees.
The department is also home to the journal Res Philosophica (formerly, The Modern Schoolman), one of the oldest philosophical journals in the United States.
The department welcomes Dr. Jason Turner (currently at Leeds) who will be joining the department as a full-time faculty member starting Fall of 2014.
John Greco and Eleonore Stump are recipients of a John Templeton Foundation award for over 3 million dollars. The award supports an interdisciplinary research initiative studying the subject of intellectual humility. (Full story here.)
Jon Jacobs has been awarded the Marc Sanders Prize in Philosophy of Religion for his paper "The ineffable, incomprehensible, and inconceivable God: Fundamentality and apophatic theology". The paper will be published in the upcoming issue of Oxford Studies in Philosophy of Religion.
Eleonore Stump has been awarded the 2013 Aquinas Medal by the American Catholic Philosophical Association.
