HON 2100: Honors Core: Ethics and Critical Reasoning (2023-2024)

View all HON classes

This Honors Core course continues the liberal arts investigation of what it means to be human in the context of philosophy and moral reasoning. It investigates how knowledge is constructed -- and by whom -- and begins foundational work in the intellectual frameworks and practices of a scholar. The central aim is to develop good, productive, critical thinking and reasoning skills sufficient for navigating some of life’s most pressing and seemingly intractable problems. Aristotle declared the human person a “rational animal.” One might conceive of this as a crash course on how to think/reason well. And the course continues to model the honors program's pedagogy of faithful academic scholarship through its commitment to intellectual hospitality, inclusion and embrace, and “loving our neighbors as ourselves.” Interested non-Honors students can contact the Honors Director for registration on a space-available basis. Typically offered: Winter, Spring.
