This the home page for Prof. Ron McClamrock’s Philosophy 111, The Mind and the World, to be taught in the Spring semester of 2018.

A preliminary course syllabus is available from the link above or to the left.

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 polls (20%, using the iClicker.
