Introduction to Epistemology

SAT2715HF  L0101
Offered in Fall 2010  ·  Previously offered in Winter 2009 · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

In this course, we will look at some of the central problems of epistemology: What is knowledge?  How do we get it?  Exactly what do we know, anyway?  How does knowledge differ from belief?  And how do we respond to the challenges of scepticism and post-modernism?  After starting with a historical survey of the answers to these questions, we will examine the answers proposed by the Jesuit theologian Bernard Lonergan.  Lectures, discussion, short papers and final exam.
