Western philosophy refers to the philosophical ideas and works of the Western world.
It includes Plato, Aristotle, Descartes, Kant, among many others.
Western philosophy begins in the pre-Socrates era and reaches the modern day.
Different philosophers from different eras have a lot to offer. There is sometimes a contradiction between their views on various topics, and it is difficult to determine whether any common element can be found and if any core meaning can serve as universal and all-inclusive. But I tried my level best to categorize their philosophies based on their beliefs.
The course will discuss concepts like Empiricism , Rationalism , Monism , Atomism ,and logical positivism in detail.
Western philosophy has often reflected on theories that emphasize formalism and universal concepts. I have made sure that I have discussed this with complete sincerity.
This course also explores how western philosophy evolved over time.
All the complicated concepts that evolved over time from different philosophers are explained in an easy manner in this course.
Everyone who has never studied philosophy and has never had any experience with it will benefit from this course. Well-organized presentation and a smooth flow make this course easy to follow.
I am hoping that the course will be of benefit to many students.
Who this course is for:
- Everyone who is interested in learning western Philosophy
It has been my privilege to teach philosophy for 15 years as an educator.
My belief has always been that Philosophy is a scientific subject, like math or physics. It should only be learned that way.
My interest in philosophy started during my graduation years and over time, it has become more than a subject. I would say it is a passion for me to learn and teach philosophy.
Hopefully I can pass that passion on to you.
I am excited and thrilled to be a part of Udemy. I am immensely grateful for the opportunity to take you on this journey.
