S880: Problems in Ethics in Sprout Spring 14 (Feb. 15 - Mar. 01, 2014)
In this seminar, we will explore some of philosophy's most notoriously challenging ethical puzzles and try to make sense of them together. For many of these hypothetical predicaments, pinpointing a right answer is impossible, but the search for one will make you both a more astute thinker and a more sensitive observer of the world around you.

X642: Dreams in Splash Fall 13 (Nov. 09, 2013)
What are dreams? What causes them? Why are they important, and what do they say about the way that our minds work? These are questions that have been explored for millennia by a variety of disciplines. In this class, we'll talk about the nature of dreams from biochemical, philosophical, and psychological standpoints.The class will be mostly discussion based, with some in class readings to inform our conversation.
