PHI 2301 Philosophical Thought 3(3-0)
This course is an introduction to Philosophy. It will examine the principal themes of philosophical inquiry (e.g., metaphysics, theory of knowledge, ethics, politics, aesthetics, etc.) from both a historical and multicultural perspective. And insofar as philosophy is central to human life, its history, in different places, records the efforts of many to understand the world and our place in it. The study of philosophy therefore contributes to an understanding of some of the ideas that have shaped and continue to shape human life, as well as teach one how to think critically about it.
