TOPICS COURSE DESCRIPTIONS:

PH-230  Love and Friendship 

What are love and friendship? Why do we love and who are our friends? What is the relation between self-love and love for others? What, if anything, do love for a partner, for the divine, for art and knowledge, and for one's country share? This course explores a number of philosophical approaches—from ancient Greece to the contemporary world—to these questions. Particular attention will be paid to the implications of the theories we will analyze for issues such as human nature, happiness and the good life, and moral and political relations.

PH 327  Aristotle 
                                                                                                                 
Aristotle’s philosophy aspires to be a systematic whole. At the same time his writings are rich in suggestions and open to the multiplicity of the phenomena. Our goal will be both to identify the fundamental and pervasive principles of his thought and to appreciate the complexity of the treatises we will study. We will focus primarily on his theory of human nature and his view of the distinctive place of human beings in the cosmos.
