Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2015-2016.

This course will cover various topics in metaphysics at an intermediate to advanced level. Likely topics include laws of nature (do they merely describe how the world happens to be, or do they prescribe how the world has to be?), causation (what is it?), and properties (what is it for something to be a circle or an electron?  Do two things that "are the same shape" literally share something in common?).

When Offered Fall.
