PHIL 45.01 Paradoxes and Puzzles

Paradoxes have played influential roles in philosophical investigations since antiquity. Paradoxes figure both in arguments for important philosophical theses and in (alleged) refutations of substantive positions. This course considers a selection of celebrated paradoxes along with important attempts to solve them. Students will consider topics in a variety of fields, possibly including philosophy of language, logic, ethics, decision theory, metaphysics, epistemology, and philosophical methodology.

Prerequisite

One Philosophy course, or permission of the instructor.

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.

Offered

Not offered in the period of 17F through 19S
