Course Description

Philosophy is the art of thinking clearly. In this course, you will learn how to address some of the most fundamental questions in life, which science cannot answer. You will gain an understanding of the role that conceptual frameworks play in shaping our world and how changing things often starts with re-thinking them in a new, perhaps controversial way.

As the foundation of all other disciplines, philosophy focuses on the very scope and limits of human understanding and deals with the most fundamental knowledge of the world and ourselves. This course sets up students to become competent thinkers, leaders, and innovators as well as formidable communicators.
