Sex, Love and Friendship (PHIL*1030)

Code and section: PHIL*1030*01

Term: Winter 2020

Instructor: John Russon


Other people play many important roles in our lives, but it is in intimate interpersonal relationships that they affect us most directly and powerfully.  In this course, we will use the works of some of the greatest philosophers in history to try to deepen our understanding of these relationships; simultaneously, we will use the themes of sex, love and friendship as a way to introduce the discipline of philosophy itself.
