Philosophy Through Fiction

Description Override

As an introduction to philosophy, this course covers all the same core problems as PHIL 110 and many of the same thinkers. However, this class will explore these philosophical questions through the lens of short fiction author Ted Chiang, whose “Story of Your Life” was the basis for the movie Arrival. We will work through both his collections of short fiction and read them alongside traditional philosophical readings on related topics.
