About the Department

Welcome to the Philosophy Department of Siddhinath Mahavidyalaya, the Department started from the inception of the College with Honours and General course. Philosophy, often regarded as the “love of wisdom”, is an intellectual exploration that seeks to unravel the fundamental questions of existence, knowledge, morality, and reality. In our undergraduate philosophy program, we are dedicated to fostering a dynamic and engaging environment that encourages critical thinking, reasoned argumentation, and a deep reflection on the complexities of the human experience.

It was enriched with dedicated teachers who always tried their level best for academic upliftment of students. Extension lectures/seminars had been arranged and students used to participate in NSS related activities, Sports, cultural programmes/dance performances, excursion/ study visit etc. Teachers of the Dept. used to participate in College Seminars, workshops, various cultural programmes, sports, seminars of different academic institutions.

Wall Magazine:

The department has Wall magazine named "ATMABIT" (KNOWER OF SELF). It refers to the self- realization One’s true nature, which is believed to be the same as the ultimate reality. This realization leads to the removal of ignorance and the cessation of suffering. It can have various impact on students-

  1. Self-awareness: It can promote introspection and self-reflection among students, encouraging them to explore their own identities and beliefs.
  2. Personal growth: Understanding the concept of the "knower of self" can lead to personal growth and development as students strive to understand themselves better and align their actions with their true selves.
  3. Cultural appreciation: It can help students appreciate the depth and richness of Indian philosophy, providing them with insights into a different cultural perspective.
  4. Spiritual exploration: For some students, it may spark an interest in exploring spiritual practices or philosophies that can lead to a deeper understanding of the self and the universe.
  5. Academic interest: It can generate interest in the study of philosophy, psychology, and other related fields, leading students to explore these subjects further.

Overall, the impact of such concepts in a college wall magazine can be profound, fostering a sense of self-discovery and intellectual curiosity among students.
