NEW Introduction to Philosophy – Part 4

This is a fascinating course which will explore influential philosophical conceptions such as the Socratic legacy over the centuries, Postmodernism, Individualism in the context of Theism and Nihilism, Communism and Pluralism. Join the debate about our existential being in the world, its meaning and how these ideas have captured intellectual imagination and shaped human lives across the globe. Keep questioning your knowledge of reality and explore the unknown from various perspectives.  Students can join this course without having attended Part 1 and/ or 2 and or 3, but it would be an advantage to have completed part 1-3.
