Loyola's Philosophy faculty is among the largest and most diverse of philosophy faculties in the United States. The members of this faculty have authored a large number of book publications and scholarly journal publications, and many of them are recognized experts in their fields, with national or international reputations, as the brief biographies on the faculty pages show. (For a list of recent book publications, click here.) The Philosophy Department at Loyola is therefore unique, in that, unlike other Philosophy departments, it can boast a number of different research strengths. Students, therefore, are able to pursue a wide variety of individual specialties as they work with the faculty to complete their degrees.
