In this lecture for the first week we explore ways of thinking about what philosophy is. For those of you in the Ethics and Moral Issues course just ignore the references to HUP 101…the basic question -what is philosophy?- is the same for both classes.


About Richard Brown

I am a philosopher at the City University of New York. In particular I am a Professor in the Philosophy Program at LaGuardia Community College. I earned my PhD in Philosophy with a concentration in Cognitive Science from the Graduate Center in 2008.

    Hi Doc Brown, I am working through your course and enjoying it. It is taxing my brain a little. I trained as an Engineer (in Australia) and knew geometry etc and now retired but Socrates blows my mind.
    Is there a text or sets of notes to go with the course, or could you recommend a text. Regards, Lloyd

    I found this through Youtube, not through WordPress. Maybe you should add some tags covering the main topics of each lesson so your course will pop up when searching in WordPress.
