PHIL101: Introduction to Philosophy
Lecture + Tutorial Version (not offered for 2016-2017)
This version has two 50 minute lectures and one 50 minute discussion session per week. The discussion is led by one of my teaching assistants. The advantage of this format is that the discussion sessions are capped at 20-25 students so that you can expect to engage in a thoughtful exchange of ideas with other members of the course. Attending discussion sessions is required. Please do not sign up for this section if you aren’t prepared to attend these sessions each week and to participate in the discussion.
Lecture-Only Version (Terms 1 and 2)
This version has two 75 minute lectures per week; there are no discussion sessions. I offer this format for students whose schedule makes it difficult to attend discussion sessions as well as lectures. This version of the course also allows for more Q&A during lectures and covers more topics than the lecture + tutorial format.
