Welcome to Philosophy 1

I am not currently teaching Philosophy 1, so, relevant info regarding assignments, etc., has been removed. Should I teach this class again in the future, all pertinent information will instead be added to eCompanion.

This course focuses on issues and theories important to the Western philosophical tradition, such as the problem of freewill and determinism, and the question of the meaning of life. Before digging into the crème de la crème of philosophy, though, a proper foundation will be built by becoming acquainted with the basics of argumentation and critical thinking.
