Philosophy


PHIL 1423
FREEDOM, MIND & KNOWLEDGE
In this course, the student is introduced to philosophy through a series of shorter philosophical excerpts from a variety of authors and periods. The focus will be on three issues: whether humans genuinely exercise free choice, how to understand the relation between body and mind, and what constitutes human knowledge. The goal throughout is to develop skills of critical analysis and self-expression, while coming to understand some of our culture's most influential thinkers. Students may register for no more than 6 hours at the 1000-level.
