Introduction to Philosophy

The great Socrates stated “an unexamined life is not worth living” and over this course we will be studying the purpose of human existance, questioning what it is to be human and what it means to exist.

In this course you will study the ideas of the ancient Greek Philosophers Socrates, Plato and Aristotle to consider the existence of the soul, contrasting this with 14th century Philosopher Descartes considering the nature of reality and our existence. Come prepared to argue abstract ideas and concepts as we investigate the philosophical arguments for the existence of God examining apriori and aposteriori proofs of God and the arguments for the soul and the meaning of life, what our purpose is, or whether it is all predetermined or perhaps an illusion entirely

Who is the class for?

This course is for anyone keen to think deeply about life the universe and everything.
