PHIL 265 Honors Philosophy- Ideas Past and Present

This course explores the impact of both classical and contemporary ideas on post-modern society. It will explore the nature of intellect and define and discuss the meaning of abstract thought. The course will seek to understand the relationship between place, time and thought and will thus look closely at the social and historical location occupied by all of the thinkers discussed throughout the semester. Finally, this course will focus on post-modern American institutions such as the economic, political, health care, leisure, religious and legal and analyze the ways in which each institution can be explained using the power of ideas. (Honors Course) Open to students enrolled in the Liberal Arts & Science - Honors Program or by permission of department chair.
