Instructor: Luc Bovens. This course meets MW 11:15 a.m. – 12:05 p.m. in PH 215, with a recitation on Fridays.
The Gateway course provides an introduction to the quantitative techniques, conceptual tools, and core principles of philosophy, political science, and economics. The course clarifies the similarities and differences between the philosophical, political, and economic approaches, and the limitations of each if considered individually. This enhances the understanding of each discipline, its conclusions, and the ways the disciplines can enrich and complement each other.
Recommended prerequisite: 1 ECON course.
This course is NOT co-convened, and will meet at UNC all semester.
