This is an Honors introduction to a sampling of contemporary philosophical problems. Topics include determinism, freedom, and moral responsibility; skepticism and the problem of induction; mind and body; the nature of morality; the existence of God; perception and the physical world; and meaning, verification, and the possibility of metaphysics. Extensive and very careful reading will be required. There will be little lecturing, and we will expect to benefit from active discussion on the part of everyone. The other requirements for the course are three short papers (c. 5 pp. each), a midterm and a final exam.
