Session I I (June 30 - July 25)
PHIL 103- Self and World: An Introduction to Metaphysics and Epistemology
Eugene Marshall, Assistant Professor of Philosophy
This course introduces basic philosophical methods and concepts by exploring a variety of approaches to some central philosophical problems. Topics covered include the existence of God, the relation between reason and faith, skepticism and certainty, theories of knowledge, the relation between mind and body, and the compatibility of free will and causal determinism. Readings are drawn from historical and contemporary texts. Discussions and assignments encourage the development of the student's own critical perspective on the problems discussed.
