This class will provide an introduction to the basic methods and issues of philosophy. We will explore topics like the relationship between mind and body, the conflict between free will and determinism, the existence of God, and ethical questions like what is the fundamental source of right and wrong, and under what cirmcumstances we are justified in killing other living creatures (humans and non-humans alike). We will also investigate the epistemological question of whether and how we can be certain that the beliefs we hold are true.
