What is the world really like? What are we? What is a person? Does God exist? Do we have free will? How can we know anything at all? These are perennial questions of philosophy, and P106 Introduction to Problems of Philosophy invites students to consider them carefully and systematically.
Our courses emphasize clear and cogent thinking about fundamental problems. They provide in-depth examinations of these problems—and their potential solutions—in the writings of great historical and contemporary philosophers. Whether you tangle with ethics, existentialism, logic, or metaphysics, you learn how to think about big issues and formulate your own ideas.
