PL 3900 - Metaphysics

This course studies those principles and features that are necessary to the intelligibility of whatever is real insofar as it is real. It examines the relationships between being and becoming, the actual and the potential, creativity (freedom) and causal determination, the necessary and the contingent. It examines some questions about the existence and nature of God, the relation between physical and immaterial beings, and between being and knowing. Texts from major philosophers (historical and/or contemporary) are employed.

Prerequisite: PL 1100  or PL 1150 .
