    Lecturer: Lawrence Cahoone, Ph.D.​

    What is reality? It's a seemingly simple question. But penetrate beneath its surface and the simplicity drops away, a succession of subsequent questions luring you deeper-to where even more questions await. Ask yourself whether you can actually know the answers, much less be sure that you can know them, and you've begun to grapple with the metaphysical and epistemological quandaries that have occupied, teased, and tormented modern philosophy's greatest intellects since the dawn of modern science and a century before the Enlightenment.

    During this rich period of philosophy, fascinating minds like Kant, Locke, Nietzsche, and Wittgenstein (to name but a few) struggled to improve our understanding of the world against the backdrop of unprecedented scientific, technological, and historical developments. The resulting tension brought forth a vast range of questions:

    Is the scientific view of the world compatible with human experience? And is the issue made more difficult by concepts like free will, moral responsibility, and religion?
    What is the mind's place in a physical world? And is the mind itself different from the brain?
    Is there such a thing as objective truth? What are the implications of the answer for politics, science, religion, and other aspects of human civilization?

    And, ultimately, the most important question of them all:

    What is the ultimate nature of reality, and what are the limitations on our knowledge of it?
