Semester 2, 2013 | Credit Points: 6
Coordinator: Anik Waldow
Phone: +61 2 9114 1245
This unit will trace theories of perception and representation by looking at Locke, Gassendi, Berkeley, and Hume whose fascinating, and often controversial, approaches urge us to base our concept of the world on experience. We will investigate the interplay between sense perception, reason and imagination, explore the limits of knowledge and examine the link between expereince and self-conception. The unit aims to develop a perspective that allows students to reflect critically on central issues of the contemporary debate.
