PHIL 055. History of Modern Philosophy. 4 Units.

Students study central philosophers and issues starting from roughly 1500 A.D. Authors students read might include: Descartes, Leibniz, Spinoza, Locke, Berkeley, Hume, and Kant. Examples of questions addressed: Do we have assurance that the "real world" is as we perceive it to be? Is there actually a world that exists independent of our perceptions? When does what we believe count as knowledge? Does God exist? Do we have free will? Do we have souls? How can we best govern ourselves? (GE2B)
