|Knowledge Mind and Existence as Introductory Topics in Philosophical Problems - 87254 - PHIL 120 - 01|
Introduces students to philosophy by exploring fundamental problems about reality, the limits of human knowledge, and the nature of the mind. Topics include whether we have free will, whether there are grounds for doubt about the basic beliefs about other people or the world, and the nature and role of cognition in the composition of a human being. Essay writing is an integral part of this course. In their essays students are expected to demonstrate an understanding or major philosophical questions, define key terms, mount arguments for and respond to arguments against, positions on philosophical issues, develop research and argumentation skills, and improve their command of written English. Students are encouraged to make use of the Philosophy Department's Essay Clinic.
Note: Students with credit for PHIL 110 may not take this course for credit.
