Welcome to Introduction to Philosophy, a four-credit university-level course. This course includes an introduction to: the subject of philosophy and its subfields; free will and determinism; theories of morality and justice; the existence of God and the problem of evil; mind and matter, skepticism and certainty. Our aim is to think rationally and critically about rival views on these topics. We do so by assessing arguments offered by Anselm, Aquinas, Descartes, Hume, Kant, Mill, Rawls et al. and-as a result-hone our skills in critical thinking and argumentation.

The content and goals of the course were exceptionally admirable, and I was particularly impressed by the accessibility of the instructor. We communicated via email frequently, and he was always engaged and thoughtful in his responses.
