In ‘Philosophy: Questions and Theories’ some of the most important issues of the history of philosophy are explored including the question of what exists in the world, the sources and limits of human knowledge, the notion of the good or ethical, the nature and justification of the state, the human condition and its relation to the world as well as many others. More specifically, the course explores these issues by studying the ideas of some of the greatest and most influential philosophers of our time including Plato, Aristotle, Epicurus, Aquinas, Hobbes, Descartes, Locke, Nietzsche, Sartre and Marx just to name a few.
By exploring such questions and theories, the course very naturally encourages students to think critically, form their own opinions and express abstract concepts and arguments in a thoughtful, clearly stated and rational manner. ‘Philosophy: Questions and Theories‘ is the ideal course for those who wish to attain a systematic and comprehensive overview of this important discipline.
