This capstone course for the Philosophy major will focus on a close reading and analysis of influential texts in philosophy. It will act as a suitable culmination to a major in Philosophy, and a bridge into Honours/MPhil, with an emphasis on in-depth treatment of more narrowly focused topics and, in some cases, their historical genesis. The content is not fixed in advance, but will be determined from year to year by a combination of available expertise and the latest research in the field.
