GINTD 5011 Ways of Knowing: How We Make Meaning

Ways of Knowing is a course in philosophy providing a framework for exploring western epistemology as one characteristic way of knowing. We will question whether the western paradigm is the only way to configure reality, and if investigating the world through other lenses can also lead to scientific understanding, deep analysis, and rich inquiry. This course is intended to deepen the student's academic depth, critical reflection, and cross-cultural understanding.
