This is the homepage for PHIL 101 — Introduction to Philosophy.

The subject matter of philosophy traditionally concerns the articulation of ”big” questions such as, ”Can we know anything?”; ”What is real?”; ”What kinds of things exist?”. Philosophers use rigorous and disciplined methods of thinking, in the hopes of bringing such questions under intellectual control. This course provides an in-depth look at a few specific topics, rather than a comprehensive survey of the field and its history. You will learn what philosophy is all about and how to do it yourself.
