PHIL 356 Metaphysics

PHIL/BETH 583/683 Healthcare, Justice, and Community

SCHG 399 Science, Technology, & Social Change Lecture Series


FALL 2013

PHIL 205 Intro to Philosophy; PHIL328/SCHG 300-01 Environmental Ethics; PHIL 535/635 Political Philosophy


I try to teach the following courses on steady rotations (click links for a sample syllabus)

Ethics, Introduction to Philosophy, and Lectures in Social Change: every second semester or so

Philosophy of Law, Environmental Ethics, Social & Political Philosophy (3xx): every 3-5 semesters

Political Philosophy (5xx), Metaphysics (3xx) every 6 semesters or so

If I am not offering these in a given year others might be -- in particular, Professors Hanson, Owen, and Potter specialize in ethics/social-political, and Professors Kimball, Dove, or Gibson might teach Metaphysics. And PHIL 205 and 321 are always offered by a number of people each year.
