6 Units of Credit6 UOC
Academic Item Menu
Philosophy examines the fundamental presuppositions of every area of human life and inquiry. This course introduces you to philosophy by taking up questions about the nature of knowledge, the human mind and its relation to the body, the principles of right action and of a good life, and freedom and constraint in a just political order. We will examine both contemporary and historically influential approaches. This course will help you develop the critical and analytical thinking skills necessary for advanced study and your future career. While this is a standalone introductory course, it can be usefully combined with ARTS1360: Truth and Human Existence.
