In this course we will consider some of the central problems of philosophy. We will begin with a consideration of one of the foundational texts of modern philosophy, the Meditations of René Descartes (1596-1650). Then we will consider historical and contemporary treatments of three main topics related to the discussion in the Meditations, namely, the relation between mind and body, the existence and nature of God, and free will and moral responsibility.
