PHIL 1461 - EPISTEMOLOGY (THEORY OF KNOWLEDGE)


Minimum Credits: 3
Maximum Credits: 3
This course will focus on philosophical theories that attempt to answer the questions “what is knowledge?” And “how does one get knowledge?” It will examine how claims to know are justified, and if such claims are even possible within both scientific and nonscientific contexts. We will look at the attempts of classical and modern authors to offer analyses and justification of human knowledge over and against the claims of skepticism.
