This course will take you on an adventure covering more than 2,500 years! You'll meet odd characters like a
man who hung out on street corners, barefoot and dirty, pestering everyone with questions, and another who climbed inside a stove to think about whether he existed. Despite odd behavior, philosophers of the Western world are among the most brilliant and influential thinkers of all time. As you learn about these great thinkers, you'll learn how many of the fundamental ideas of Western Civilization originated. You'll also get a chance to ask yourself some of the same questions these great thinkers pondered. By the time you've "closed the book" on this course, you will have a better understanding of philosophical systems and ways of thinking.
