PHI 010E - (HP) Philosophic Themes in Science Fiction

Semester Hours: 3
Philosophy and science fiction go hand-in-hand: science fiction thinks about issues, in a way that is entertaining, vivid and gripping, that philosophy thinks about, too – issues such as identity, the nature of mind, time and time travel, appearance and reality, whether there are alternative worlds. This course will use excerpts from science fiction and philosophical readings to explore some of these issues and introduce the student to philosophy. No prior course or experience in philosophy is necessary.
