Instructor: Kiran Bhardwaj. The course meets MTWRF 1:15 p.m. – 2:45 p.m. in SA 204.

Making Sense of Ourselves is an introduction to philosophy that considers some of the most compelling human problems. Do we have free will? Can we know whether there is a God, and why there is so much evil in this world if there is? Why should we be moral? What is the nature of happiness? How can we live meaningful lives? The answers explored in this class will survey a variety of possible ways to make sense of ourselves.

We will be reading both classical and contemporary readings in philosophy.  This course satisfies the Philosophy general education requirement.
