This is an introduction to philosophy that explores a range of issues pertaining to religious conviction, knowledge, mind, freedom, ethics, and value. This exploration will take place through critical engagement, via reflection, writing, and conversation, with written work – some classical, some contemporary – in the philosophical tradition.
Two sections will be taught each semester. Each section limited to 25 students. Fall semester: Visiting Professors Boxer and Koltonski. Spring semester: Professor George and Professor Emeritus Kearns.
