UT Philosophy Department Annual Newsletter

The UT Department of Philosophy is a flourishing community of scholars consisting of more than 80 undergraduate majors, nearly 30 graduate students, roughly a dozen full-time faculty lecturers, nearly another dozen tenured or tenure track faculty, two outstanding administrative staff persons, and an always helpful work-study student.   Fulfilling the Department’s teaching, research, and service missions and administering its academic programs would not be possible without the contributions of each and all!

To learn more about what we have been up to as a community of scholars this past year, we invite you to read on!
