PH 327 Modern Philosophy

In the 17th century, philosophy both contributed to and responded to the "scientific revolution." But how did it do so and why? How were traditional philosophical assumptions about objects, thoughts, minds, free will, and God reconstructed in response to the rise of modern science? The course will emphasize how new metaphysical and epistemological positions developed in their historical context and have influenced subsequent philosophers. Prerequisites: EN 102 and PH 100. Liberal Arts Core/University Requirements Designation: DSINQ, PH-2. (3)
