PHIL 220/2100 - Philosophical Thinking (core curriculum requirement) (3 cr.)
or concurrent (for students enrolled prior to Fall 2013).
RHET 1010 (for students enrolled in Fall 2013 or later)
This course concerns the human desire to know. It is, therefore, a course in learning how to understand and how to be understood. It teaches students to listen to what others say, interpret what others have written, and take responsibility for one’s own words. This is accomplished through reading texts of great intellectual distinction, patiently practising the art of interpretation without easy answers, and carrying out a sustained effort to write thoughtfully. This course encourages students to think independently, responsibly, and critically.
Offered in fall and spring.
