This course will be an introduction to philosophy through focusing on a few well-known classes of philosophical paradoxes and the solutions that have been proposed to deal with them. Included will be paradoxes about space and time, morality, acting and believing rationally, vagueness, and truth. Each week of the course we will focus on a different class of paradoxes through a mixture of both lecture and discussion during class time.
