I’m sorry, but my list of final exam times got garbled. The originally scheduled final exam for this class is NOT Saturday 12/17 at 3:30pm, but Tuesday 12/20 at 9am.

Most of you are taking the exam in class on Monday 12/12 (the last day of class). But the optional day/time is Tuesday 12/20 at 9am (not Saturday 12/17 @3:30pm).

If you want to take it on the 20th at 9am, you still can send me email indicating that up through this Friday (12/9).

Sorry for the mixup.

This the home page for Prof. Ron McClamrock’s Philosophy 111, The Mind and the World, to be taught in the Fall semester of 2016.

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 participation (20%, using the iClicker).
