About philosophical anthropology

ACU philosophical anthropology students walking through campus

Explore the philosophical study of ourselves and what it is to be human. Philosophical anthropology covers a diverse range of topics, including understanding personal identity and the individual self, the social nature of being human, gender and sexuality, the meaning and extent of personal freedom, the relationship between reason and emotion, the human request for meaning, the implications of human finitude and mortality, and theories about the nature and relationship of mind, soul and body.

Where can philosophical anthropology take you?

A strong understanding of philosophical anthropology is useful for those interested in a career in human-centred services, such as law and theology. It’s also valuable for future secondary school teachers of philosophy – particularly in Victoria. Because of this, a double-degree that pairs philosophy with teaching, law or theology is a great choice. You can also take your academic studies in philosophical anthropology to the next level by pursuing a postgraduate degree, such as a Master of Philosophy or PhD.
