Courses: Early Modern British Philosophy (PHILH222B01)

Spring 2010

What is the nature and what are the limits of human knowledge? How can we think all that we actually do think? What is mind-independent reality like? What is a person, and what does personal identity consist in? This course examines these and related questions in the philosophical writings of Locke, Berkeley, Hume, and Reid. Emphasis is on a philosophical understanding of the theories of reality and cognition developed in these texts.
