My name is Elijah Hess

I am a graduate of Denver Seminary (MA Philosophy of Religion) and am currently pursuing further graduate work in philosophy at the University of Arkansas-Fayetteville. I want to join with those voices that have already spoken out against Cedarville University’s move to eliminate its philosophy program. I write this because I wish to call attention to the fact that philosophy, as a foundational disciple for the development of evaluative and critical thinking skills, is an indispensable area of study for a true liberal arts-based education. This is not a merely some “pet” concern of an esoteric few. It is a clarion to wake up to the realization that there is not a single profession that cannot benefit from the skills philosophy promotes and fosters.
