This honors course, intended for students in the Honors Transfer Program, investigates the big questions of philosophy, such as: What is the meaning of life? What can I be sure of? How do I know I’m not living in the Matrix? What is truly valuable and what is overvalued? What is the best life? Do I have free will? Emphasis is placed on how philosophers go about answering such questions and how these questions are relevant to our lives.
