PH 504 Philosophy and the Humanities

A graduate-level introduction to philosophy as a context for humanistic inquiry. Readings and class discussion will focus on foundational issues such as the distinction between the sciences and the humanities, theories of truth, interpretation, and historical knowledge, and theories of art and aesthetic value. Students will learn to interpret and evaluate primary source texts to appreciate how influential philosophers have framed questions and constructed theories about these subjects. In addition, during the semester, students will attend one or more relevant academic events at a DC area research institution to learn about contemporary philosophical research. (3)
