We all live complicated lives, and we often depend on "common sense" assumptions to help us simplify things. But there are other ways of living, ones that involve asking questions that help us reflect. How are we to understand ourselves, our world, and our place within the world? In this class, we will question our common-sense assumptions, and work to create some independence from our practical need to assume particular answers to these big questions. To do that, we will read closely the works of several philosophers, and we will explore the questions they ask, the way they attempt to answer them, and what conception of philosophy they have.  Overall, we will be concerned with the question of how this kind of inquiry can help us to live well.
