Birth, Life, and Death

One of the tasks of philosophy is to help us live well.  In this course, we examine philosophical issues arising over the course of a life, so that we might make more reflective and thoughtful choices in our own lives.


Being a critical thinker is being someone who is responsive to reasons - someone who reasons fairly, reasons well, and reasons independently.  This is a course designed to develop the skills of a good reasoner.
