Philosophical Classics III: Post-Kantian Analytic Philosophy

PHIL 261
Fall 2021
Section: 01  
Course Cluster and Certificates: Christianity Studies

This course focuses on the development of a central strand of European and American philosophy after Kant: the analytic tradition of philosophy. The philosophical orientation, problems, and methods of this tradition animate much of contemporary philosophy, and this course aims to provide a basic grounding in this tradition, and thereby a gateway to current mainstream philosophizing. Topics include: logic, mathematics, science, necessity, thought, knowledge, and reality.
