PHI 2010 Introduction to Philosophy 3 This course serves as an introduction to philosophy. It has two aims.

Familiarity with these topics will serve as an excellent introduction to the questions that philosophers worry about.
The second goal of the course is to teach the student how to do philosophy. The questions we will consider will be difficult ones. They are not only hard to answer, but in many cases hard to formulate properly. Philosophers thus place a premium on clear and precise thinking. Learning how to write philosophically will develop skills useful in any academic context. The best way to learn these skills is to engage with well-written philosophical texts and being able to discuss the principles behind them.
