Jenkins, Philip W

Instruction Type: Moodle-Supplemental Instruct Lecture/Discussion

This course is devoted to exploring a number of fundamental philosophical questions that make their way into everyday life: What is the meaning of (my) life? Is there any meaning in my life that will not be destroyed by my death? What is happiness, and how can I achieve it? What is it to be wise, and is wisdom a good thing to have? What is death, and what does it mean to me? Is the unexamined life really not worth living (as Socrates maintained)? In exploring these questions, we will read selections drawn from both historical and contemporary sources.
