PHL 1502 - Philosophy and Popular Culture (3)

When Offered: Fall; Spring
GEN ED: Integrative Learning Experience (Theme: “How We Tell Stories”)
This course will examine the ways in which stories may be used to express or examine philosophical ideas. Many works of fiction explicitly engage with philosophical concerns regarding (for instance) the nature of truth, knowledge, and morality. This course will enable students to recognize such themes in works of fiction and will provide them with the vocabulary needed to analyze and understand those concepts.
