Prints in 3-5 business days
This college course, an Introduction to Philosophy, is not a history of the great philosophers and their systems. It is not a survey of the traditional divisions of philosophy--metaphysics,... More > epistemology, phenomenology, ethics, politics, and aesthetics. It is, however, a process of doing philosophy that takes up some of the basic questions and problems that we will all encounter in life--sooner or later. It is also an application of the Socratic method of teaching and learning that develop habits of independent, critical, and reflective thinking. It is a series of Socratic seminars on the Great Books by the greatest faculty of the Western world and a process that illustrates how to pass from the world of work, need, and empirical science into “the world of all things” (beings) that Being provides.< Less
