- Treat Others as you would like them to treat you: The key to Ethics?
First we analyse this maxim. Then we build on it aided by great philosophers of the past & recent research. We then apply these ideas to issues such as love, friendship, future generations, difficult people, dilemmas, careers, business & weakness of will.
- Death and Immortality: East and West
From death and the afterlife in ancient Egypt to nirvana and the Daoist quest for immortality, this course explores views of human destiny and the afterlife in a variety of western and non-western traditions, both ancient and modern.
- The Philosophy of Emotion
Emotions are central to human life, but why they are so important is an open philosophical question. Through reading philosophical texts and engaging with art, we will come to our own conclusions about the role emotion plays in our lives.
- Introduction to Philosophy (Online)
We think we know, but do we? We think we are free, but are we? We think our actions are moral, but are they? What is this reality we take ourselves to live in? The oldest questions meet the newest technology in this online introduction to philosophy.
- Philosophy of Religion (Online)
The course looks at what, if anything, it is that Jews, Christians, and Muslims are agreeing about when they claim that there is a God; and we shall look at what, if any, prospects there are for rationally defending or attacking this claim.
