This course follows the historical development of philosophy and introduces the ideas of Berkeley, Hume, Kant, Schopenhauer, Nietzsche, and Wittgenstein. It will also cover the broader subjects of Existentialism and Logical Positivism. The course will cover questions about, what constitutes the nature of reality, what counts as knowledge, what is the self and see how answers to those questions, impact on ethics. The aim is also to equip students with a basic understanding of philosophical methodology.
Each seminar is designed to be accessible for those having little prior knowledge of philosophy, whilst those having a background in philosophy may welcome the chance to revise their knowledge.
