Introduction to Philosophy

HUMA 2033

Course description

The major topics in this course include epistemology (ways of knowing), social and political thought, and ethics. After introducing students to each of these areas we explore a number of relevant topical issues. In the process we will consider three broad questions: How do we know what we know? How do/should we act? How do we understand social relationships and power? We will consider these questions with several of the topics listed below.
