PHIL 112.951 – Making Sense of Ourselves
Instructor: Krasi Filcheva. The course meets MW 6:00 – 7:15 p.m. in GL 305.
Restricted to part-time studies students. Will be open to all students close to the beginning of the Spring semester.
In this course, we will investigate some of the central themes that arise from the enduring human effort to confront the problem of the meaning of life – death and suffering, the immortality of the soul, religious faith and the existence of God. We will study both philosophical and literary works, as well as contemporary and classic authors (Camus, Tolstoy, Schopenhauer, Dostoevsky, Feinberg, Schlick and others).
