Spiritan Missionary Seminary is founded on the philosophy of The Catholic Higher Education which is “truly outstanding in learning, ready to shoulder duties of major responsibility in society and to witness to the faith before the world” (Gravissimum Educationis 10). We believe that Philosophy, which is the main component of our programme, fulfils that desire.
This is because philosophy is able to cultivate clarity of thought, breadth of vision, and intellectual balance in making judgements. It calls for a critical thinking which helps the students to make a distinction between what is essential and what is superficial. A sound philosophical training also will help students to read the signs of the times by striking a balance between what is old and what is new.
