This course is a lot of fun! In this course, you will be introduced to the nature of philosophical inquiry by considering some of the most fundamental questions that can be asked about the nature of reality, human beings and our knowledge of both: Does god exist? Do humans beings have free will? What’s the essence of personal identity? What does it mean to have knowledge? Can we know anything at all? Do human beings have an obligation to act morally? What makes a particular action moral or immoral? And what is the meaning of life? The material covered in the course will include a variety of selections from both current and historically important thinkers on the issues.
