Highlighted Spring 2020 Courses
PHIL 245: Existential Problems
MWF 12 – 12:50 PM, Modern Languages 210
Professor Carolina Sartorio
In this course we will discuss some central questions about the human condition, including questions about the kinds of beings that we are, the meaning of our lives, and questions about death, (im)mortality, and the value of life.
PHIL 437: Moral & Social Evolution
TR 3:30 – 4:45, Social Sciences 411
Research Professor Allen Buchanan
This course will examine the application of evolutionary thought to society, and especially to morality and social life. We will be reading books by eminent scholars: primatologists, ethnographers, anthropologists, a science writer, and a moral psychologist. The course generally works up from the evolution of pro-social feelings in primates to human biological evolution, cultural evolution, technological and other neat types of evolution to moral psychology.
