Formally inaugurated in 1895, the School of Philosophy has accepted 389 doctoral dissertations on issues confronting every major philosophical discipline and every figure in the history of philosophy. The School continues this endeavor against the background of a broad consensus on the definitive importance of two perennial questions: What is the human good? What are the ultimate principles of being and knowledge? The awareness of these questions and the study of their possible answers constitute an end and an ethos in light of which the School chooses to concentrate on the careful reading of primary sources in the history of philosophy.
