Philosophy is about the rigorous discussion of big questions and sometimes small precise questions that do not have obvious answers. This class is an introduction to philosophical thinking where we learn how to think and talk critically about some of these challenging questions. Such as: Is there a single truth or is truth relative to different people and perspectives? Do we have free will and if so how? Do we ever really know anything? What gives life meaning? Is morality objective or subjective discovered or created? We'll use historical and contemporary sources to clarify questions like these to understand the stakes to discuss possible responses and to arrive at a more coherent more philosophically informed set of answers.
