Introduction to Philosophy

Spring 2011 
This course introduces students to philosophy through exploration of a number of themes addressing central philosophical questions.  These questions include: What is the nature of reality, and how can we be sure of it?  What is free will, and do we have it?  How are we to decide what is the right thing to do?  Is there a God?  We will further consider the meaning and value of “philosophy” itself.  Throughout the semester, selected works from both classical and contemporary thinkers such as Aristotle, Descartes, and Camus will be examined.
