Phil 311: History of Ancient & Medieval Philosophy
Dr. Louis Mancha [TTh 12:15-1:30 pm]
This course will evaluate some of the basic theories and problems of Ancient and Medieval philosophy. We will study Plato, Aristotle, Augustine, Anselm and Aquinas primarily, but will have the opportunity to evaluate some Pre-Socratic thinkers and a few selections from Boethius, Scotus, and Ockham. The major topics to be covered will include the nature of being and substance, Platonism vs. nominalism, modality, causality, truth, free will, & evil.
Phil 318: Topics in Philosophy—Aesthetics
Dr. William Vaughan [TTh 9:25-10:40 am]
What is art? Are some works of art better than others? Does art have as much claim to truth as other fields? In trying to answer these questions, this course takes a traditional approach in reviewing some major classical (post-Kantian) expressions of aesthetics, and their standard arguments and objections. This course satisfies a core humanities requirement.
Phil 330: Readings in Love & Friendship
Dr. Mark Hamilton [MWF 10-10:50 am]
If your boyfriend says to you, “I love you,” how should you respond? Should you ask him to define his terms? This is a course on love, the highest expression of human affections. What is love? What have great minds and great lovers said about love? We will explore what thinkers such as Solomon, Plato, C.S. Lewis, Shakespeare, Sartre, and others have said about this deepest of human emotions. After reading these classic works you should be able to unravel the confusion of your boyfriend or girlfriend’s utterances. If you are not interested in love or the meaning of friendship then please stay clear of this course. Yet if love is something you have been looking for in all the wrong places, then please look for it in one of the right places, specifically, this course! (Which satisfies a core humanities requirement).
