Primary Instructor:

Everyone agrees that human beings have an amazing power to reason. This power enables us to challenge our own desires, goals, and habits of mind. It enables us to explain why things happen and to predict what will happen next. In this course, we will explore the relation between reason and faith, reason and morality, reason and science, reason and action, and more. Without the capacity to reason, it would never occur to us to reflect on ourselves, and so it would never occur to us to change how we think and live. In exploring the power and limits of reason, we will be engaging in this very process of self-reflection. Most of our guides will be philosophers. But we will also seek insight from other fields, as well as from short works of fiction and perhaps even a film or two.

Course Requirements:

Papers, short responses to the reading, short take-home quizzes, the option of a final exam

Intended Audience:

As an Honors Core course, this course is open only to first- and second-year students in the LSA Honors Program.
