Some of the beliefs people have are more rational than others. But which? And why? In this class we’ll explore these central epistemological questions by discussing readings on three topics: Socrates’ claim that no-one knowingly does wrong, the rationality of religious belief, and skepticism. The class is intended as an introduction to philosophy, so no prior philosophical experience is necessary.
