What is the meaning of human life? Is death the end? What are friends for? What is the nature of love and sex? These are difficult philosophical questions that are highly relevant to our lives. To deal with such matters, you need to be able to think philosophically. On this course, students will become acquainted with methods that underpin philosophical thinking and get to know the views of major thinkers. What we study together will be useful for helping all participants to develop their own positions on these questions and issues. We emphasize the importance of participation in class with the aid of films and other media. Students will be assessed by their performance in these sessions as well as by group presentation, writing short essays and a short quiz.
