LAPR 811 - Topics in Philosophy

3 credits
This course examines selected topics in Western philosophy. Primary sources comprise most of the readings. The course focuses on developing an understanding of the arguments of selected Western philosophers and attempting to analyze the various ideas they present. To do this, we examine some of the “”big questions”” that appear in philosophy - questions concerning the nature of reality, the definition of terms such as “”justice”” and “”happiness”“, and the meaning of “”values.”“
