Course Description: This course surveys the central issues and themes of philosophical research by tracing the historical development of the field. Topics include what it means to philosophize and how to write a philosophical argument. In this course, students read several short texts by Immanuel Kant and G.F. Hegel. These texts introduce their ideas about philosophy and what constitutes philosophical inquiry. Often it is helpful to approach philosophy by reading authors who disagree with each and other and whose way of philosophizing differs, which is true for Kant and Hegel. Hegel is both accepting and rejecting of Kant. The course consists of much discussion about the meaning of these difficult texts. Texts: Immanuel Kant, CRITIQUE OF PURE REASON; Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, PHENOMENOLOGY OF SPIRIT. Assessment: class participation (20%), four 2-page papers (80%).
