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.
