PHIL 100

Mind, Knowledge and Reality

Please note: this is archived course information from 2022 for PHIL 100.


Metaphysics deals with fundamental problems about the nature of the world and human beings, for example, questions about the existence of God, the nature of time, the relationship between mind and body and the nature of identity and the self. The theory of knowledge studies the sources, limits and justification of human knowledge and understanding as distinct from opinion or belief.
