PHL 230 - History of Western Philosophy I

3 Credits


This course introduces students to the ancient Greek philosophers, the “counter-cultural” thinkers of their day whose writings formed the foundations for contemporary Western thought. Through these philosophers, we explore questions that continue to puzzle us today: What is the nature of “nature”? How do we gain “scientific” knowledge? How can you live a happy life? Readings include selections from Plato, Aristotle, Pythagoras, and others.
