Course Description

This course will introduce you to philosophy. Rather than attempting a comprehensive overview of the history of philosophy, we will consider four philosophical questions: (1) What should we do about injustice? (2) How does knowledge work? (3) Do we have non-physical minds/souls? (4) Does God exist?

Student Outcomes

(1) Students will be able to state some central philosophical questions and describe some of the main answers to those questions that have been proposed. (2) Students will be able to analyze philosophical arguments, identifying important strengths and weaknesses in those arguments. (3) Students will be to develop their own views on important philosophical questions and defend those views in both speech and writing.
