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.
