Instructor: Dominik Berger. This course meets MW 3:35 – 4:50 p.m. via synchronous remote instruction.

This course is an introduction to some of the main problems in Philosophy. We will study (among other things) such questions as: Can we know that there is an external world? Why does the universe exist? Can human life be meaningful? What is the relationship between the mind and the body? What makes a certain action good? Do we have free will? Besides introducing you to some of the main topics of contemporary (and historical) philosophy, this course also aims to teach you to read, write, and think philosophically.
