About Us

The Philosophy Department at UC Riverside is a pluralistic program with strengths in specific areas of analytic philosophy, contemporary European philosophy, and of the history of philosophy. There is a large amount of interchange among the different areas of strength in the Department and most faculty work in multiple areas. Ours is a program where students can study both contemporary analytic and contemporary European philosophy, where there is a strong presence in the history of philosophy, and where no rigid barriers between these different areas of philosophy exist.
