This course provides an overview of the central problems of metaphysics (the study of reality) and epistemology (the study of knowledge). Under the rubric of metaphysics, we will examine issues such as the analysis of causation, the notion of personhood, and the problem of free will. Under the rubric of epistemology, we will deal with topics such as the analysis of knowledge, the notion of justification, and the case for radical skepticism.
