The aim of philosophy at the University of Dallas is to recover the possibility of
a wisdom dealing with those "first things" which ground and locate human experience
within the whole of being. Philosophy explores the totality of human existence. It
analyzes the frameworks within which other human endeavors occur and recommends ways
in which they might be situated so as to throw light on the character of the totality.

The study of politics at the University comprises all human things. If the polis is
the association whose purpose is the complete human life, then politics includes all
the activities whose end is the complete human life. In reflecting upon these activities,
politics becomes philosophic. Indeed, it is only political philosophy, whose founder
was Socrates, which takes seriously the possibility of the best regime as the standard
whereby every other polity is to be judged. Political philosophy, according to Aristotle,
is an inquiry into the soul. Find out more about the Ph.D. in Politics via the Institute of Philosophic Studies.
