Professor Robert J. Parmach
PHIL 1003-R01 (CRN: 10059), Monday & Thursday 8:30am-9:45am
Proceeding by the Socratic Method, this course examines the views of Plato, Aristotle, Augustine, Aquinas, and Descartes, and their intellectual links to contemporary science, religion, and Jesuit education. We investigate salient themes, including existence, knowledge, truth, mind, justice, morality, reality, belief, and love. The course stresses critical spoken dialogue and writing-intensive assignments, many of which consist of interactive (and fun) out-of-class learning experiences. The professor even feeds you at most of these.
This course satisfies the Philosophy of Human Nature and Eloquentia Perfecta 1 Core requirements.
