Online Learning will continue through Friday, April 3. Spring Break begins April 4. Info and Updates
In this course, students will become familiar with major thinkers such as Plato, Aristotle, Descartes, Aquinas, Locke, and Kant and such philosophical positions as Rationalism, Empiricism, and Determinism through a systematic study of four areas of philosophical investigation. These four areas include: consideration of our human nature, epistemology, philosophy of God, and the mind-body connection. Its focus will be on increasing the ability of students to read for comprehension and understanding, think critically, and communicate effectively through both the spoken and written word. Students will analyze the wisdom found from philosophical thought, both classic and contemporary, with the intention of considering their effect on their everyday lives and lived faith.
