Final grades and grades/scores for exam #5 are now available. Find them on the Grades and Scores page. Please let me know if you think there’s some error.

Exam 5 is being graded. Once they’re done, I’ll post grades for the course and for exam 5 here on the web page. That will happen by 5/18. Check here on the web page for updates; I’ll put a post here on the the main page when they’re up. (Please, no “are they done yet?” emails; I’ll post here as soon as they’re available.)

If you want to get your exam 5 back, email me after the grades are posted, and we’ll arrange something (since I can’t just leave them out somewhere for the obvious privacy reasons).

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