Philosophical World Views and Values

Course Description

The course itself is intended to introduce students without a background in philosophy to some of the key texts, authors, perspectives, and concepts of the History of Ideas, with a particular focus upon human nature, culture and society, and the reality underlying and encompassing human beings and their experiences.

Lecture videos were created for Dr. Sadler's online World Views and Values class, currently taught in a 10-week (9 thinker/text) version for Marist College, and coming this summer in a 12-week (12 thinker/text) version for Oplerno.

In the current class, the following 9 philosophers are covered: Plato, Epictetus, Boethius, Descartes, Hobbes, Rousseau, Wollstonecraft, Marx, King. We'll be adding 3 additional thinkers in the expanded class: Aristotle, Freud, and Arendt

Intro music is Russian Easter Festival Overture, Op. 36, by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, performance placed in the public domain by MusOpen
