PHIL10003: Philosophy, the Great Thinkers

July 2014

at the University of Melbourne

PHIL10003: Philosophy, the Great Thinkers is a University of Melbourne undergraduate subject, introducing philosophy to students through close readings of core texts. I taught with Dr. Chris Cordner and Dr. Ruth Boeker. In my classes, we looked at David Hume’ Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion and Natural History of Religion, with some side trips into hume’s Enquiry, and some Marx, Wittgenstein for good measure.

The subject was taught to University of Melbourne undergraduate students (for Arts students as a part of the Philosophy major, for non-Arts students, as a breadth subject). Details for enrolment are here.
