Philosophy 101 Mrs Marie Young

This is a special course at Independence Junior College for understanding our society and socio-political development. In the West, several varying and, at times, conflicting views as put forward by Aristotle, Hobbes, Mill, Marx, King, Fewell, and Coll, among others,  have been put forward to define, describe and explain human society.  This course seeks to introduce students to the theories and original writings on some of the greatest thinkers throughout history in social philosophy and develop their ability to communicate knowledge and ideas to others, as well as apply these ideas in a contemporary context.
