This course aims at investigating a series of metaphysical concepts through the analysis of some of the most important philosophical treatises in the history of Western thought. Students will develop adequate critical and analytical skills by reading philosophical and interdisciplinary texts on topics such as being, causation, freedom and determinism, God, idealism and realism, mind and body, philosophy, and universals and particulars. Furthermore, students will learn to orient themselves in thinking by addressing a series of questions, including: What is philosophy? What does it mean to think? Do humans have free will?
