Theme of the Seminar

Students often de-motivate taking philosophy as their primary field of study, since society does not find its utility anywhere in its realm. Especially common men identify it as a religious subject, which is declared as worthless, devoid of any scientific value. One, having no conceptual understanding of the subject, nourishes such opinion now and then. On the other hand, Philosophy is not a standalone subject but combines various aspects of history, psychology, politics, logic, ethics, and religion experience.

This seminar is dedicated to both type of people who possesses such opinions and also to those who have a passion for Philosophy. It allows one to find out one’s way on such issues which are yet to be explored by scientific mind. Philosophy as a subject is not only the art of answering questions but also is about asking difficult questions that no other field can tackle. It is rightly said that science is what we do know, but philosophy is what we don’t know, it’s about delving into the complexities of the human mind and emotion in many ways. These days, when more and more youngsters are gaining interest in understanding the socio- political functioning of the country, arguing in logical manner is the need of the hour. Graduates of philosophy students are prepared for careers as legal professionals, psychological counseling, public administrators, medical ethics experts and aesthetic cognition which takes evaluation of all thes work seriously.

sciences, social sciences, arts, and humanities. It reminds one of Ancient Greek methods of enquiry that began with a “desire for a universal understanding”. Pythagoras argued that there was a mathematical and geometrical harmony to the cosmos or the universe and his followers linked the four arts of astronomy, mathematics, geometry, and music into one area of study to form the “disciplines of the mediaeval quadrivium”. The three arts of the “humanities”-grammar, logic, and rhetoric were grouped as the trivium was added to the four to make a club of seven liberal arts to cultivate the mind and character that nobody can afford to be without.

People obviously cannot be good craft-workers, merchants, soldiers or businessmen unless. regardless of their occupation, they are good, upstanding and according to their condition – well- informed human beings and citizens. If this basis is laid through schooling, vocational skills are easily acquired later on. Therefore, Philosophy as a main architect of human knowledge allows us to study, think and beyond to govern the human development as a whole.
