PHIL 12.01 Medieval Philosophy of Language and Reality

Does language mirror reality? Are linguistic expressions reliable guides to truth? If not, why not? If so, how can we best approach the study of reality through language? Medieval philosophers make great strides in logic, semantics and metaphysics in their attempts to answer such questions. Topics considered in the course may include signification, the logic of predication, the nature and number of categories, analogy, substance and accident, existence and essence, universals, and the status of relations.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
