Dr. Jennifer McCrickerd's section of Paths, Spring 2014 & Fall 2013

You have spent much of your life in school with the intended goal of acquiring, among other things, knowledge. In this class, refill be looking at the question of what knowledge is, why/if/when it’s important, and how it is most productively acquired. More specifically, our discussion of knowledge will shift to a discussion of truth and understanding, how (or whether) these are related knowledge, which of these is the most desirable and, again, how they are acquired. In the course of these discussions, we will touch on many topics and disciplines including, but not limited to, philosophy, neuroscience, art, sociology, and history.
