Instructor: Min Tang. This course meets MW 8:00 – 9:15 a.m. in CW 213.

In this course, we will read, discuss, and argue about some of the most important Western philosophical works on God, mind and body problem, personal identity, the self, and freedom of
the will. Readings will include substantial selections from Plato, Descartes, Hume, and Ryle. For each week, there will be a good deal of reading and writing both in and outside of class. This course will provide students a great opportunity to engage with some of the most significant and enduring contributions to the Western intellectual tradition while improving their writing and reasoning skills.
