The Department of Philosophy of National Chung Cheng University started out as a master program in philosophy, which was established in 1993. It was not until 1998 that we evolved into a philosophy department proper.
We kick-started a Ph.D. program in 2002. The purpose is to promote research in fundamental and inter-disciplinary areas, to cultivate professional philosophers systematically and effectively, and to redress the imbalance in the distribution of academic resources between the northern and the southern parts of Taiwan.
