Courses

      • PHIL 2300-002 INTRODUCTION TO PHILOSOPHY

        This course is an introductory partial survey of western analytic philosophy and its history. Some of the questions to be explored include the following. What factors, if any, determine which actions are morally right? Under what conditions do we know anything about the world around us, or even ourselves? What criteria determine that you are the same person as someone who existed yesterday? Can the physical sciences account fully for mental phenomena? How is change over time possible? What criteria determine whether something is possible? While exploring these and other questions, the course will emphasize clarity in thought, argumentation, and writing. Readings range from Plato and Hume to Mill and Russell to Lewis and Haslanger.
