Instructor: Thomas Hofweber. The course meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:00 – 3:15 p.m. in Caldwell 105.

This course is an introduction to metaphysics for undergraduates. We will discuss a selection of metaphysical problems, including personal identity, the nature of time, free will and determinism, the question why there is anything at all, the existence of abstract objects, the problem of universals, the statue and the clay (aka the problem of material constitution) and others.
