By discussing four or five traditional substantive problems in philosophy-morality, the nature of knowledge, freedom of the will, the nature of mind, and social organization-we attempt to derive a common approach that philosophers bring to these problems when developing their own solutions or criticizing the solutions of other philosophers. We also consider some of the ways that substantive issues and debates in philosophy relate to contemporary non-philosophical issues in our society and can be introduced into a broad range of educational environments outside standard philosophy courses.Crosslisted: CRCRTH603L and CRSCAD603L and UPCD603L are the same course.
