Department of Philosophy

The Department of Philosophy was formally inaugurated by the then Vice-Chancellor, Professor Hamid Ahmad Khan, on 7 March 1964. Originally, it was housed at Lawrence Road, Lahore. On 27 June 1964, it was shifted to the New Campus (now Quaid-e-Azam Campus) and, after a few changes of location, was finally housed in its present premises. Qazi Muhammad Aslam was the first Chairman of the Department. In 1965, Dr. C. A. Qadir replaced him as Chairman of the Department. Professor Karamat Hussain Jaffary headed the Department for a short period of time. In 1971, Professor Khawaja Ghulam Sadiq was appointed as Chairman. He retired in 1982 and then Professor Dr. Abdul Khaliq headed the Department till 1995. Later on headship rotated between Dr. Absar Ahmad and Dr. Naeem Ahmad for consective terms. Presently Prof. Dr. Sajid Ali is Chairman of the Department since 15th March, 2006.
In order to pay homage to the memory of Allama Muhammad Iqbal, Philosopher-poet of the East and a distinguished alumnus of the University of the Punjab, Iqbal Memorial Lectures were instituted in 1964. These lectures, arranged annually by the Department of Philosophy, have been delivered by eminent Pakistani and foreign scholars. The Department also organizes seminars and invites eminent scholars to address the students.
It was also decided to designate the Professor of this Department as Iqbal Professor of Philosophy. The occupants of the Iqbal Chair, prior to Dr. Sajid Ali, were Professor Q. M. Aslam, Professor C. A. Qadir, Professor K. G. Sadiq, Dr. Absar Ahmad and Professor Dr. Abdul Khaliq.
