Topic: Appearance and Reality

What is the nature of reality?  How can we know?  What is the relation between how
things seem to us and how they really are?  In this course we will consider these and
related questions by reading some central texts of the European philosophical tradition.
We will strive to develop an understanding and appreciation of the nature of
philosophical questions and the tools philosophers use to answer them.  Authors will
include: Plato, Descartes, Berkeley, Kant, and Schlick.
