Instructor: Ralph Flanders. This course meets via remote, mostly asynchronous (RM) instruction.

This course will introduce students to a very selective sampling of philosophical puzzles as well as some of the historically important responses to those puzzles. No background will be presupposed. We will spend the first week of the course exploring logic and argumentation before going on to explore some specific problems such as: the existence of God, skepticism about knowledge, the existence of numbers, the problem of human free will, and the objectivity of morality.
