Department of Philosophy

“Education is the Manifestation of the Perfection already in Man…. Therefore the only duty of the teacher…..is to remove all obstructions from the way.”

– Swami Vivekananda

Philosophy is an academic discipline that exercises reason and logic in an attempt to understand reality and answer fundamental questions about knowledge, life, morality and human nature. The ancient Greeks, who were among the first to practice philosophy, coined the term. Philosophy helps in creating a rational and reasonable mind and develops skills to think critically and analytically. It also helps human to stand on a strong social and ethical platform.

Brief History of the Department of Philosophy

The Department of Philosophy is one of the oldest Department with which Berhampore Girls’ College opened its doors to women’s education and emancipation. The Department was established in 1946, when ‘Logic` (a branch of Philosophy) was taught in the intermediate classes. A few months later in 1947 ‘Mental and Moral Philosophy` was introduced as a general subject in B.A. Pass Course. Philosophy as an Honours subject began its journey in 1951. Department started functioning with Renowned Professors like Usha Pait, Kalika Charan Roy Choudhury, Kalihar Sarkar, Din Dayal Banerjee, Nirod Baran Chakraborty.

The Department is proud of its past students who are placed successfully in the respective fields chosen by them – be it academics, administration or any other professional sphere. Dr. Karuna Bhattacharya, alumna of this Department, stood 6th in the I.A. Examination. She became a Teacher of this Department for a few months, later she joined Calcutta University as a Professor of the Department of Philosophy, and then became the Pro-VC (Finance) of Calcutta University.

The report would remain incomplete if we do not acknowledge the services rendered by the bright, sincere, energetic and dedicated teachers like Sujata Hazra, Minati Basu, Shubha Ganguly, Manju Dasgupta, Ardhendu Kumar Chatterjee, Mamata Samaddar and Manjula Banik.
