Mythology [C]

COURSE CODE: PHI 100

CREDITS: 3

To determine the meaning of myths, this course addresses the following questions: Do myths present other ways of knowing the world which science and philosophy cannot achieve? What might myths tell us about ourselves, other peoples, and the natural world?
