Where would philosophers fit in a city? They will be the sculptors of people.
The contemporary world is a constant challenge: its understanding and interpretation are arduous to say the least. In this context, the purpose of philosophy consists of posing the pertinent questions and looking for their answer. For this, it is necessary to bet on the truthfulness of thought: only with this trust in reason will it be possible to elaborate a fruitful speech about the universe and nature, about the reality of the human being and his openness to transcendence. Far from creating a system of empty concepts, Philosophy plays a fundamental role in the formulation of proposals for human action, based on a deep anthropological understanding.
At the School of Philosophy of Universidad Panamericana we are aware of the great challenge that humanities face these days as well as its importance in university education. For this reason we have designed school curricula based on a solid knowledge of the classics, which encourages critical thinking and a deep understanding of what surrounds us.
The faculty in our School, which consists of more than forty professors from different departments, has academic degrees that prove their research capacity. Many of them are part of the Researchers National System (official body which recognizes scientific contribution’s quality and prestige), and of the Mexican Philosophical Association.
Our faculty’s constant academic activity is evident as they frequently participate in national and international congresses aiming at foreign universities and scientific project planning and development. Recently, important lines of research, which have been supported by private and government authorities, have been opened.
Dialog both among teachers and students and with people from other institutions is one of the most important priorities. Our school is visited periodically by highly qualified national and foreign professors.
