Philosophy 240 is an introduction to epistemology (the study of knowledge) with the elements of metaphysics (the study of the nature of reality) as required for the clarification of the concept of knowledge. It introduces methods and tools of philosophical investigation through a cluster of questions about reality and our knowledge of it. The major questions considered include What is knowledge?, Can we know anything at all?, Are we rationally justified in having the beliefs that we have?, and What distinguishes knowledge from superstition, ideology and pseudoscience? The course will be of interest not only to philosophy students, but to all students interested in fundamental questions pertaining to the nature of knowledge and physical reality.
