This course is an introduction to the major concerns of Western philosophy. Topics included are the question of ethics, metaphysics, the philosophy of religion, and the theory of knowledge. Through an examination of the evolution of key philosophical issues, students will also learn how arguments are formed, how new theories are developed from philosophical debate, and how through disagreement a greater understanding of complex topics can occur. Throughout the class students will examine their own systems of knowledge, beliefs, and the course will culminate with them creating a portfolio of their own personal philosophy.
