A study of philosophical topics at the introductory level. The content of the course is entirely at the discretion of the instructor.
"Philosophy of Possibility and Necessity." In this course we will examine several of the most important philosophical theories of possibility and necessity from several different perspectives. We will study and critically evaluate many of the answers that have been offered for questions such as: What do claims about possibility and necessity mean? What is a possible world? How can we know anything about possibilities that never occur? Can we ever know that something is necessary or impossible, and if so, how?
