PHIL 13.01 17th Century Rationalists

A study of central themes in the works of the three most celebrated philosophers of the seventeenth century: Descartes, Spinoza and Leibniz. Metaphysics and epistemology will be our focus, and the topics we’ll explore include mind, matter, necessity, contingency, truth, causation, space, time, knowledge, reason and the existence of God. We’ll approach their philosophy through a variety of their texts, in English translation, including treatises, papers, dialogues, letters and unpublished drafts and notes.

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.
