PHL-410 Knowledge, Truth and Power


Prerequisite: PHL-101 
Introduction of philosophical reflection about knowledge. How should knowledge be defined, why knowledge is good to have, whether there are good responses to skepticism, how we should understand the relationship between knowledge and rational justification, what is the correct understanding of how beliefs come to be rationally justified, how we should understand such notions as “truth” and “objectivity,” and whether knowledge is relative to particular conceptual schemes or cultures. 4 credits.
