Abstract

Philosophical questions are meaningful questions that do not have empirical or formal answers. The course seeks to grasp as well as answer a number of central questions in philosophy such as: - What makes moral judgments true? - What rights and liberties should people have? - What is aesthetic experience? Is it possible to provide a correct definition of art? - How might a meaningful life be possible in a purely physical world?
