  • The official UAlbany course evaluations are available via your MyUAlbany page.
  • My feedback form (which is for feedback that’s more about the detail of this specific class) is linked on the Course Feedback page. I’ll give you 2 extra clicker points for completing it; but even if you don’t need the points, I’d appreciate you taking the 5 minutes or so to fill it in; it’s helpful to me in trying to improve the course.

We now have approval, so exam #5 will be given in class on the last day of class (Wednesday, May 6th). If you don’t want it then, please send me an email by Sunday 5/3 requesting that you be allowed to take it in the original exam period (on May 15th).

Day 1 overheads

The overheads for today are posted now on the Overheads page. (Normally, I’ll just post them and not make any special note of that on the main page.)

This the home page for Prof. Ron McClamrock’s Philosophy 111, The Mind and the World, being taught in the Spring semester of 2015.

The preliminary course syllabus is available here. There could be a few more minor changes.

Here’s a brief course description:

A survey and critical examination of topics in contemporary philosophy, focusing largely on the relationship between the human mind and the natural world. Topics will include skepticism about knowledge of the external world, the relationship between the mind and the brain, the possibility of the mind causing free actions, and the existence or non-existence of God. Grade will be based on a combination of in-class exams (80%) and in-class quizzes and participation (20%, using the iClicker).

If you have questions about the the course, please e-mail me at ron – at – albany – dot – edu.
