This course is a broad introduction to philosophy that is valuable in itself and which will also serve as a foundation for more advanced courses in philosophy. The writings of a variety of philosophers will be discussed, including selected works of Plato, Descartes, Hobbes, Berkeley, Hume and Kant as well as the writings of more contemporary philosophers such as Russell, Smart, Searle, and Rawls. Topics to be discussed include philosophy of mind, theory of knowledge, philosophy of religion, and ethics. Evaluation will consist of two midterms, a final exam, and a discussion paper.
