What is the meaning of life? What's so bad about death? Are you free to take this class, or was your choice determined even before your birth? Socrates claimed that only the examined life was worth leading. On this module, we will embark on a philosophical journey which will enable us to begin examining our lives and questioning our assumptions. How do you know the world exists outside your mind? Can you know other people have minds? What are minds and how are they related to brains? How do our words get their meanings? Why is helping an old woman across the road morally right, but knocking her out and taking her money morally wrong? Are humans more valuable than chimpanzees, cats and cabbages? Does morality depend on god, or is rape immoral even if there is no god? Are there any good arguments for or against the existence of god? Is there any good reason to believe in god? What rights do individuals have? What makes a society just? This course is for anyone with an interest in philosophy and the enthusiasm to take that interest further. It operates as part of the Inside Narratives pathway, and will equip you with the knowledge, understanding and skills that will help you to study other courses in the pathway.
