Additional Details:

This course aims to familiarize students with the discipline of philosophy by exploring its many, vexing quandaries: Is there objective truth, or is that just like, your opinion, man? Are some actions really right or really wrong, or is morality all subjective? Are things like race and gender biological realities, or are they social constructs? By looking at responses to these and other philosophical questions, students will improve their ability to think critically and develop their own ideas, and to responsibly express those ideas in an argumentative fashion.
