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, to be taught in the Fall semester of 2014.
A preliminary course syllabus available here. I still expect some mostly 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.
