PHI 116 Great Trials: Truth and Censorship 4cr

This course will take up questions of truth, censorship, and judgment as challenges that need to be considered for the present time. Although such diverse thinkers as Socrates, Galileo, Thoreau, and Camus challenged their respective societies and accepted notions of truth in important ways, their quests for truth will be used to question our own truths and values; in order to ask what censorship and judgment mean today; and to ask, "What does it mean now to be ahead of our time?"
