Transcript Title: BIG QUESTIONS/ PHIL 
UC QTR Units - Division: 12.0 - Upper Division 
Course Description: In this course, students explore ten of the “big questions”: What do I know? What is consciousness? Who am I, and do I exist? Do I have free will? Does God exist? What are space and time? What are numbers? What should I do? What is justice? What is the meaning of life? To find answers to these questions, students learn essential skills of a philosopher: first, reading philosophical texts, focusing on how to extract and present a philosophical thesis and argument in a clear, logical way; and second, practicing creative, critical thinking and impromptu discussions by participating in philosophical discourse with your peers. Students also learn to write philosophical arguments of their own in essay-form.
