PHIL 200 - The Origins of Western Philosophy

Credits: (3)
Instructional Method: Three hours lecture.
Introduces students to philosophy by tracing the development of the discipline from its origins in ancient Greece to the decline of the ancient world in the 4th and 5th centuries CE. Through an examination of the work of such thinkers as Socrates, Plato and Aristotle, students learn to engage in careful and critical reflection on both the human and the natural world and to experience the sense of wonder that animates the discipline of philosophy.

Note(s): This course has been approved for Core Curriculum credit in Humanities.  Students cannot earn credit for both PHIL 114 and PHIL 200.
