The main goal of the Department is give the main fields of problems in philosophy to the students throughout its past, thus to make the students gain a sense of problem-analyzing, and also direct the students to go further to the main problems of our time with a sense of right-evaluation for the philosophical views in consciousness. Additionally the foregoing aim and the mission of Department is also to develop students’ consciousness for problems and problem-analyzing, and to show philosophical views forming our era by putting a connection between the past and intellectual life of our modern time with the help of philosophical equipment’s already gained and accumulated.     

The mission of the Department is to form a platform with proper people comprising the individuals to detect the cultural, ethical and public problems of our time and to find solutions with a critical point of views for those problems. So, in that sense, the activities of our Department of Philosophy at Uludag University not only depend on the academic teaching of philosophy but also carry out its mission regarding the social aspects; in addition to offering BA education and post-graduate studies together with Erasmus programs aimed for abroad and inland Farabi exchange programs; the philosophy department also publishes its periodical philosophy journal KAYGI issued twice a year, which is searched and scanned by “Ulakbim” (Social Sciences Data Base) and Philosopher’s Index. We also hold many meetings and seminars under the supervision of UFED (Uludag Philosophy Union). We try to make philosophy gain a widespread interest on social platforms; we also collaborate with civil society organizations.
