PHIL 25100 - Rationalism & Empiricism

Course Credit: 1
RATIONALISM AND EMPIRICISM During the period from about 1600 to 1800, modern science emerged, and the Medieval worldview receded. These deep changes led to a re-evaluation of our understanding of knowledge, God, and the human mind. This course focuses on the Empiricist philosophies of Locke, Berkeley, and Hume, and the Rationalism of Descartes, Spinoza, Leibniz, and Kant. Their work will be used to introduce some crucial debates in philosophy today. Annually. Fall. [AH]
