Introduction to Philosophy [C]

A basic introduction to central questions in Western philosophy: Does God exist and how are we certain one way or the other? Does science provide reliable evidence about the way the world works? Do people have minds, souls, or are they just bodies? What makes an act the right thing to do? What is the difference between good art and bad art? Does life have no, one, or many meanings? Such questions are addressed reading classical texts in philosophy, and by arguing about these views.
