Philosophy

This course introduces students to philosophy and prepares them for full-time study of philosophy at undergraduate level. The course has three modules. (1) Logic and reason teaches students how to reason clearly and methodically about any subject matter using the tools and techniques of classical logic. (2) Mind and matter applies the methods taught in Logic and reason to foundational questions in the philosophy of mind and cognitive science concerning whether human minds are souls, brains, or computational programs. (3) Right and wrong applies the methods taught in Logic and reason to foundational questions in moral philosophy concerning whether anything can be objectively right or wrong, and if so what might exactly make something right or wrong.
