PHIL 1301: Introduction to Philosophy

Do physical objects exist? How do you know? Who is the thing that knows? These are the kinds of questions we engage in this course. The answers to these questions lead us to consider evidence for and against the existence of the physical world, theoretical knowledge, how we persist as persons, and what is right and wrong. Students should demonstrate, orally and in writing, basic problems in philosophy and their proposed solutions.

PHIL 2306: Introduction to Ethics

This course will consider basic information about ethics as well as a set of highly competitive moral theories which aim to accurately explain the truth about morality in the world. Each theory we cover presents a rational approach to answering moral questions. Additionally, each theory is subtly different from each other in their rational approaches. Students should gain an understanding of the high level of discourse these moral theories engage in, as well as gain self-understanding of their own moral views.

PHIL 2303: Introduction to Logic

This course introduces students to the field of logic, drawing from established and contemporary developments in philosophy of logic. Students will learn to recognize and assess fallacious reasoning, arguments with premises and conclusions, and translate English sentences into arguments. As student progress, they will use propositional and predicate calculus, and time permitting, some extensions to non-classical logics including modal logics.
