PHIL 1000 - Introduction to Philosophy - Writing Intensive

Hours: 3
The important questions addressed by Western Philosophy from its beginnings in ancient Greece to the modern day. Ethics, political philosophy, the philosophy of religion, the nature of human knowledge and how it is acquired, philosophy of art, the nature of reality itself and how our minds perceive it. Grappling with questions such as: Why should I be moral? Would it matter if I did things that other people think are wrong? Is it possible to prove the existence of God? Is it possible to have knowledge? Is there any reason to avoid a genuinely virtual reality? Are things really the way they seem to be? Does it really matter if I know?
