The Department has a strong research cluster in philosophy of science, and the university is home to world class STEM departments. We are the editorial home for the journal Philosophy of Science. We host the Neuroethics Thrust research team and the Center for Philosophy for Children. Department faculty in the UW Program on Ethics pursue work in bioethics, climate justice, and public health, among other topics. We invite you to learn more about the Department by visiting https://phil.washington.edu.
