PHIL 102 - World Philosophy (3 credits)

This course is an introduction to some of the great philosophical tradition in the world, both Western and non-Western. It compares and contrasts different cultures from Africa, Latin America, the Middle East, the Orient, Native America, and Europe, and their respective and distinctive attempts to discern meaning and order from human existence. Foundations of knowledge and reality, conceptions of God and the afterlife, and ethical theories are among the considered topics. Special distinctions between Western and non-Western philosophical methods will be emphasized.
