Content

The deliberate and purposeful use of imagination and creativity is indispensable in analytic philosophy. In this course we introduce, analyze and discuss various examples of such thought experiment, focusing on
- Conceptual Analysis
- Existence of God
- Skepticism
- Mind-Body Problem
- Moral Responsibility
- Ethics
- Politics
- Metaphilosophical Alternatives
Students reflect critically on the powers and limits of thought experiments. Moreover, they develop the academic skills to put “thought experimentation” into practice, i.e., to use their own imagination and creativity for scientific and philosophical purposes.
