Introduction to Philosophy (PHIL 1301)

Instructor: Sally Parker Ryan

In this course, we examine some of the major thinkers and schools of thought through the history of philosophy, from the ancients through to contemporary authors. We will look at philosophical problems and concepts as they have featured in both the Western and Non-Western traditions. We will identify argument structures and critically examine philosophical problems, and learn to think clearly and fairly about important issues. The aim is to emerge with sharper critical thinking abilities and excellent analytic skills.
