Is there a God? What is the relation between your mind and your body? What makes you the person that you are? What ought we to do? These are hard questions, but ones that admit of careful, reasoned debate. This course is an introduction to the methods that philosophers have used, and continue to use, to address these questions, and others like them. It is also, to some extent, an introduction to the particular answers that philosophers have given; but we will primarily be concerned with figuring out how we can profitably address these issues ourselves, and how to evaluate the various responses that we encounter.
