|Clyde Ebenreck : Philosophy|
One of the most important tools you will ever have is your mind.
This course (and actually every college course) is designed to assist you in honing your use of your mind to even higher degrees of skill and ease.
Your mind can overwhelm you with its unexamined truths (normally called biases): this course pushes you to examine all the truths you hold and to then see if those truths really are true or are they mere opinions which may need to be either discarded or reformed.
During the Spring, 2007 semester, I will be teaching several versions of this Introduction: both on campus, and on-line.
