Intro Philosophy: Basic Problems (PHIL*1050)
Term: Winter 2013
In addition to learning about philosophical views we will develop skills in doing philosophy: developing creativity and clarity in the claims and arguments we make. This will be primarily through short writings done weekly for seminars, and discussions of those writings in the seminars. Doing philosophy develops these skills, but of course they are important no matter what one does in life.
