It is with deepest sadness that we share the news that Dr. Lawrence Pasternack passed away on January 30, 2024.

Lawrence was a world-leading expert on Kant's philosophy of religion, and made important contributions to broad areas of scholarship. He was also a highly respected and well-liked teacher. Almost every Philosophy major and graduate student at OSU took at least one course with him. All in all, Lawrence had a huge impact both on the Philosophy Department, of which he was an important member for over 25 years, and the Religious Studies Program, which flourished under his directorship.

We miss him dearly.

Philosophy: The love of wisdom

Philosophy explores fundamental questions about the world and our place within it. These questions are thousands of years old, and have engaged some of the greatest minds humanity has produced. The Department of Philosophy offers students the skills to critically engage with life's fundamental questions. As a Philosophy major/minor, you will enjoy small, discussion oriented classes and have the opportunity to engage with other philosophers through the Ethics Bowl and Friends of the Forms.
