PHIL 100 Intro to Philosophy

This course introduces students to the field of philosophy by studying and discussing some of the most important works of classical Western philosophical thought. Emphasis is placed on the metaphysical, epistemological, social/political and ethical teachings of the ancient Greeks (especially Socrates, Plato and Aristotle), while relating these teachings to those of medieval and modern philosophers. The power of these philosophical teachings to benefit the present-day approach to issues and questions is stressed.
