Primary Instructor:

In this course, we will be concerned with issues in epistemology (that’s the ‘knowledge’ part) issues in metaphysics (that’s the ‘reality’ part), and the connections between them (that’s the ‘and’ part). In metaphysics, we will survey central debates such as the nature of time, how objects persist over time, and necessity and possibility. In epistemology, we will examine the threat of skepticism, theories of knowledge, and a priori knowledge. As for the connections between the two, we will consider whether and how we could have knowledge about fundamental facts about reality.
