Philosophy is an open-ended activity that helps us deal with the most fundamental questions about the real, the good, the true and the beautiful. This course is an introduction to the basic issues in philosophy. It covers a range of themes developed by the Western philosophical tradition, such as the nature of reality, the existence of God, the morality of our actions, the relation between mind and body, the meaning of life, the problem of knowledge and free will. Students will engage in thinking philosophically about these matters and articulate their own views as they are introduced to key philosophical works and thinkers, as well as non-Western philosophy.
