Course Description:

This course introduces students to philosophy by considering a selection of the most fundamental problems in metaphysics and epistemology including: the mind-body problem, the existence of God, the nature of knowledge, skepticism, free will vs. determinism. Our approach will be topical: we will learn what a philosophical problem is, and what methods philosophers use to solve such problems, by attempting to answer philosophical questions. Counts as Writing Intensive in the A&S Liberal Arts core.
