PHIL 150 - The Roots of World Philosophy

3 hours
This survey course examines key thinkers and philosophical movements that have contributed to the rich history of philosophical thought. This course will critically examine the ways in which philosophical thought has influenced how we understand ourselves and our world: personally, socially, and politically. To do so, the course will introduce the student to fundamental schools of thought that have shaped the world we live in today. These may include (but are not limited to), the Greek presocratics, Hellenic and Hellenistic thinkers, Confucian and Taoist reformers, European and Middle Eastern medieval philosophers, Enlightenment thinkers, Africana philosophies, as well as a few emergent contemporary figures and themes.

This course will satisfy the core area requirement in philosophy.
