Description

In this course, we will survey some of the major philosophical themes and thinkers of the early modern period. Some questions we will consider include: Can we know that there is a God? What is the human mind and how does it relate to the body? Is there an external world or is it merely a construct of our minds? How can we know about things outside of our minds? How can we be sure that one event is the cause of another? Thinkers surveyed will include Descartes, Spinoza, Leibniz, Berkeley, Hume, and Princess Elisabeth of Bohemia.
