PHIL 31.07 The Social World

Our world is rife with social entities such as money, states, clubs, and corporations. But what are these things? They seem as real as trees or mountains, yet at least some seem to be constructed by our beliefs and practices in ways that other physical things are not. This course explores questions about what social objects and social groups are, how they differ from natural objects, and how we can acquire knowledge of them.

Distributive and/or World Culture


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.
