ABSTRACT
The author suggests ways on how philosophy can reinvent itself in a way that it can contribute productive results in educating the undergraduates with the study of public health. It notes that the theory and practice of the fundamental features of any human pursuits are examined, evaluated and guided by the diversely disciplinary nature of philosophy. With this, philosophy departments can advance public health outcomes in various ways such as through offering a subject that stresses philosophy and public health, coordinating with interdisciplinary programs devoted to public health education and contributing to public health-oriented researches. An example demonstrating a philosophically oriented course of AIDS disease is provided.
