Philosophy is a theoretical enterprise, which discusses critically fundamental questions about life and
reality. It deals with fundamental concepts and principles, which pertain to different disciplines but are not
examined within these disciplines. In India, philosophy is called darsana, and means exploring the meaning
of life, which enables a person to move towards the realization of the ultimate truth. This syllabus is
designed to give students a glimpse of the nature of philosophical inquiry and issues discussed in both Indian
and Western traditions in their main branches of Philosophy: Epistemology, Logic, Ethics, and Metaphysics.
The course will encourage students to do reflective and critical thinking, and develop a perspective on life
and the world.
