Description

Overview:
Philosophy is the best training for living. Your thoughts, your convictions, and your values all exist within a framework that has developed over time. In order to understand that framework and your place in it, we will engage in thinking about the subjects and issues presented in this class through reading, discussion, and reflection. How you live and how you prepare for death, your political views, and your religious views are all determined by your thoughts and words. Through the study of philosophy, if you take it seriously, you will come to a better understanding of yourself and this will allow you to live authentically. The subject matter of philosophy is sometimes difficult but you will find that engaging in these ways will encourage you to think more deeply and sincerely about the material. This text was remixed from a number of sources for Introduction to Philosophy with the intent to offer readers a more comprehensive and diverse selection of readings. The text is divided thematically using (mostly) the expected branches of philosophy including logic, metaphysics, epistemology, and axiology. Within each section, readings come from a broad range of writers with the intent to include thinkers not usually included in Introductory texts like women and BIPOC.
