This course serves as an introduction to philosophy in the western analytic tradition. The course will place a strong emphasis on learning how to read philosophical texts and how to assess and produce compelling philosophical arguments. We shall discuss questions in epistemology, philosophy of mind, and philosophy of religion, such as: What is knowledge? What can we know? What is a mind, and is it distinct from a brain? Can we prove whether or not God exists? Is it rational to be religious?
