The Bachelor of Philosophy programme introduces students to the great perennial questions of the philosophical tradition of the West and the East. Studying questions that have relevance in all times, places, and the search for responses to these questions can dispel ignorance, promotes mutual understanding, bridges gaps between traditions and cultures, cherishes and appropriates the diverse intellectual and spiritual heritage of mankind, liberates from various forms of cultural indoctrination and prejudices, and leads to genuine human freedom. By working out a set of coherent answers to enduring questions, the study of philosophy challenges to translate philosophical principles into consistent guides for individual and social life.
