Brent Rossman (Legislative Fellow at the Ohio House of Representatives)
Philosophy has not only allowed me to come closer to understanding the truth, but it has also enlightened me to the great gift of thought. Through dialectic, with my classmates and with the great thinkers throughout history, I learned to think seriously in an earnest pursuit of truth. My professors at AU did not simply give me answers, but they helped me to cultivate the tools to find those answers for myself. That is useful not only for the deep questions of philosophy, but for the questions and challenges we face on a daily basis in life.
