Philosophy/Honors Seminar Offerings, Spring 2012

I am in the process of deciding the focus of my 2 upper-division seminars for spring, 2012.  I am open to all recommendations.

  1. I believe I have voiced my preference often enough! As for the second one, I've been waiting for ages for course on the philosophical novel...

  2. Logic 2 would be my vote, though I understand that very few people signed up for it when it was offered last.

  3. I second Jacob, Logic and critical reasoning only covered the first half of the text.

  5. Thanks for the suggestions. It could possibly be time for CR -- by next spring, it will have been 2 years. But I have a deep affinity for philosophical lit, especially of the Russian variety. (I last offered phil-lit in 2002, and I don't suspect any of you were here, or even fully sentient at that time). I agree: In an ideal world, Logic 2 (or even Logic 3) ought to be a regular part of our curriculum. Jacob has identified the problem. I'll discuss this course in particular with my colleagues. Other upper division honors courses I've taught over the years include: (advanced) aesthetics; health care ethics; war and justice; ethics and animals; Marx; and meaning of life.

  6. Since Gerol will offer Health Care Ethics, Paul a course on Justice and Peace, I have settled on Philosophy and Literature.
