Introduction to Philosophy
Instructor: Dr Tom Kerns
Welcome to the study of Philosophy, philosophers and the search for wisdom.
We will be exploring some interesting ground together this quarter, you and I, and it will require a substantial commitment of time, focus, and energy from all of us if the study is to be a successful one.
I expect that you will find the questions we explore to be important and the readings to be engaging (though some of them will be very challenging), and I hope you find the exercise of thinking out loud together very fruitful.
Here's to a fun and meaningful quarter for all of us.
