The Abbey Difference:
At the Abbey, students in Philosophy seek to answer fundamental human questions such as How should I live? How can I be happy? What is the most fundamental reality? What can be known? Is there a God? They will come to understand great works by philosophers such as Plato, Aristotle, St. Augustine, and St. Thomas Aquinas. And students in Philosophy get the chance to study alongside the exceptional seminarians of St. Joseph College Seminary.
