Philosophy 4510

Theory of Knowledge

Instructor: Franz-Peter Griesmaier
Delivery Method: Traditional In-Person
Times: T 2:45p - 5:20p

What does it mean to 'get' a joke, to understand it? What does it mean to understand a scientific theory, or a work of art, or a concept, or another person, or perhaps yourself? Understanding is a fundamental cognitive achievement. But do we understand what it is? We'll try to get there in this course, we'll try to understand understanding. Including jokes.
