PHIL 320 - Seminar in the History of Philosophy

Semester Offered: Spring
1 unit(s)
Topic for 2020/21b: Aristotle’s Theoretical Philosophy. This seminar is devoted to a close study of Aristotle’s key theoretical works, moving from his accounts of nature, substance, and the divine (in Physics and Metaphysics) to his investigations of living creatures (in De Anima and select biological works). Our aim is to appreciate why Aristotle’s philosophy would become the dominant system of thought in the Mediterranean world for the next two thousand years – and to assess whether any parts of it are viable today. Christopher Raymond.

Prerequisite(s): One 200-level course in Philosophy or permission of the instructor.

One 3-hour period.

Course Format: CLS
