Course Content Following on from last year’s highly successful course, this course introduces a further selection of great questions facing humankind. Topics such as whether we have free will, what’s the basis of morality, is there any certain knowledge, what is meaning, what is the relation of mind to body will be addressed. Each lecture is a stand-alone topic and presupposes no prior knowledge of philosophy.
