Instructor: Therese Cory

This seminar introduces philosophical problems concerning human knowing, acting, and living in society, through a rigorous study of seminal texts from the history of philosophy. We will investigate themes such as justice, moral choices, friendship, the relationship between faith and reason, and the roles of work, leisure, and religion in society. Emphasis will be placed on attentive reading and discussion of texts, and an in-depth study of the philosophical problems that they pose.
