Course Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this course, you should be able to have a strong basic-philosophical vocabulary. Words are, after all, the legs of the educational journey and, in philosophy, definition and verbal precision are to be valued above all else because it is upon words that we hang our ideas. This course will also be an excellent preparation for courses in Comparative Religions and Ethics.
