PHIL 230 Fate, Freedom and Responsibilty

3 Credits

Whether we have free will and some control over our fate, and whether we are morally responsible for what we do, are questions of central importance to what it is to be a human being.  People have long been drawn to think carefully about these questions and modern science has shed important light on them.  In this course students are introduced to the depth and complexity of these questions and offered the means to acquire a solid basis for informed and sophisticated views about the answers to them.  Along the way, through study of a variety of philosophical questions related to free will and moral responsibility, students explore the meaning of self and society, and reflect on the compatibility of faith and reason with specific reference to the Catholic Franciscan intellectual and spiritual tradition.

Prerequisite(s): PHIL 102  and THEO 104  and a minimum of 55 earned credits.
