PHIL 102 - Introduction to Philosophy


Credit(s): 6 credits for students who began the program prior to Spring 2019 / 3 credits for students who began the program in Spring 2019
This seminar introduces both the nature of philosophy and philosophical thinking.  Students learn to understand how philosophy and the questions philosophers pose are significant and meaningful to their everyday lives.  Through readings of great past and contemporary philosophers, students focus on the major areas of philosophical inquiry: Epistemology - what is knowledge and truth?  What can we know?; Ethics - What is freedom?  What is our moral responsibility to one another? What is Metaphysics? What kinds of things are there in the universe?  

Only open to students in the B.A. Liberal Arts and Sciences program.
