Introduction to Philosophy
Emphasizes the use of critical analysis and critical thinking applications to examine philosophical issues. Among these are understanding philosophical and scientific similarities and differences, analyzing the meaning of human existence, explaining and justifying ethical choices, exploring and recognizing the nature, sources, and limits of human knowledge, the question of whether God exists, how one justifies an answer to this question, and different theories about the nature of reality. The course actively engages and encourages students to recognize and associate the relevance of philosophy to everyday phenomena by utilizing active critical analysis to attempt to understand and integrate human experiences within a philosophical paradigm.NOTE: Course offered fall, spring, and may be offered during additional sessions.
