PHIL 155 - World Philosophy

(3 credits)
This course is a study of how thinkers within disparate cultural traditions engage with some of the central themes of philosophy. Guiding our course are questions such as: What is the best kind of life to live? How can we be sure about our ethical choices? What is the appropriate response to the fact of death? We will examine five separate loci of philosophical development: Ancient China, Ancient Greece, Classical India, Early Modern Africa and Early Modern Europe. (CGCL; CHUM; CWRT)
