Course Description: This course examines the ideas of key rationalists in Western Philosophy such as Plato, Descartes, Leibniz, among others, to interrogate the question of knowledge, how it is attained and what constitutes a justification for knowledge claims. In delineating the various conceptions of rationalism, the course engages some African philosophical perspectives to show that the traditional rationalist or empiricist distinction may not be exhaustive of the possible sources of comprehensive knowledge.
