Instructor: Matthew Kotzen. This course meets on Mondays and Wednesdays from 9:00 – 9:50 a.m. in Hanes Art Center 121, with a recitation on Fridays.

This course is a general introduction to philosophical questions, methods, discussion, and writing.  I will presume no background at all in philosophy.  We will be discussing various philosophical topics in metaphysics, epistemology, ethics, philosophy of mind, and philosophy of science.  There will be a heavy emphasis on learning to discuss and write about philosophical issues; hence, Recitation is a vital component of the course.
