This course introduces students to philosophy through an examination of some central philosophical problems. We will focus on these questions:

  1. What is the extent and nature of our knowledge?
  2. Does God exist?
  3. What is the nature of the mind?
  4. Are there objective ethical truths?

This course will emphasize rigorous argumentation, and some elementary tools from formal logic will be introduced. Requiremnets include several short, critical papers, a midterm exam, and a final exam. The course is taught in sections of 25 students, which will allow for ample discussion.
