Philosophy 4X: “Knowledge and Its Limits”

This is an introduction to philosophy and the theory of knowledge. The primary topic of investigation will be the form and content of human knowledge and its resistance (or lack thereof) to skeptical attack. Topics of discussion will include skepticism about our knowledge of the external world, the relationship of mind and body, the nature and requirements of knowledge, and our assurance in judgements concerning our actions.

Philosophy S12A: “Introduction to Formal Logic”

This is an introduction to formal logic. Logic, roughly speaking, is the study of inference or lines of reasoning; formal logic is they study of inference or lines of reasoning by paying attention to the form or structure of the argument. In this course, we will be concerned with two large classes of forms, sentential and quantificational (or predicate) forms. We shall develop techniques for showing whether an argument falling into one of these classes is valid or invalid. Special attention will be paid to developing skill at giving a complete, precise, and correct answer to the kinds of questions that arise in assessing inferences. We shall also learn a number of (potentially) interesting things about language, thought, and truth.
