PHIL 2063 - Philosophy and Death
Death is arguably the most fundamental and unassailable fact of human existence. But how ought we to interpret this fact? This course explores various issues arising from the philosophical reflection on mortality: What exactly is death? What implications does the fact of death have for life and living? Is life after death possible, or even desirable? Through sustained engagement these issues, students will acquire the critical tools necessary for a deeper and richer reflection on the human condition in general as well as their own mortal lives in particular.
