This 15 week course investigates the philosophical problems surrounding the nature of knowledge, which have continued to puzzle philosophers from antiquity to the present day. We could not get through life without some reliance on our beliefs and senses, but how do we know such beliefs are justified or true? To take a famous, and extreme, example: how do we know the outside world exists and 'we' are not just brains suspended in a vat? The lectures and seminars will provide an introduction to these and other questions, as well as the opportunity to learn and discuss some famous 'answers' to them.
The course schedule and Terms and Conditions are available at the International School of Philosophy website and those who wish to enrol should read them.
