PHA0001 Philosophy for Non-Philosophical Disciplines Students


The course introduces philosophy to students who do not take a degree in philosophy at the Faculty of Arts. The approach is systematic rather than historical. The lectures offer analyses of basic philosophical concepts, such as morality, God, knowledge, truth, and self, along with major theories and arguments that focus on these concepts. Part of the course is devoted to philosophical methodology, offering the basics of critical thinking and argumentation. In-class discussion is supplemented with assigned readings on relevant topics.
