Philosophy is the eternal search for truth, a search that is never defeated. It allows the mind to reflect, the spirit to wonder, to doubt every claim which is unconvincing, to conjecture and to refute and reconstruct the truth based on facts. A student of philosophy learns about various schools of Indian philosophy ranging from orthodox to heterodox, Western philosophy of the rationalists and the empiricists, contemporary modern thought, ethics, social and political philosophy, philosophy of religion, Greek philosophy and logical reasoning.
