PHIL 2010 - Great Questions of Philosophy

An introduction to the study of philosophy through a consideration of the major problems attendant upon the discussion of the nature of free will and determinism; God and religious belief; morality, responsibility and human happiness; human personality and the nature of persons; political theories; and human knowledge and science. It is not the purpose of this course to provide definitive answers to the questions discussed, but rather to expose one to the various proposed solutions, to discuss the cogency of various proposals, and to allow one to decide, in the light of the evidence offered, which proposal or proposals seem most rationally persuasive.
