PHIL 13 Early Modern Philosophy

Early modern philosophy is western European philosophy mostly of the 17th and 18th centuries, sometimes indicated as spanning from the early writings of Descartes (c. 1619) to the publication of Kant's Critique of Pure Reason (1781). It encapsulates the break from prior Scholastic and Renaissance traditions in philosophy and science and becomes hugely influential in setting the agenda of western philosophy—in epistemology, metaphysics, philosophy of mind, ethics, political philosophy, etc.—through the 20th century and up to today.

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.
