The course consists in an overview of major themes in western philosophy (especially, in metaphysics and epistemology) such as: appearance and reality, being and becoming, mind and matter, truth and knowledge, reason and experience, causation, language and logic. The order of presentation is mainly historical: Pre-Socratics, Plato, Aristotle, Rationalists and Empiricists, Kant, Wittgenstein, etc. The aim is to familiarize students with philosophical views that have contributed in shaping the history of ideas as well as to enable students to acquire the knowledge and the skills that will allow them to recognize philosophical problems and to critically develop strategies of approaching those problems.
