What is knowledge and how do we know?  Is it different from belief and is it different from faith?  In this course, we discuss the various ways in which people know, from perception to memory to testimony.  The objective is understanding of the different categories of belief, and to be able to discuss philosophically the grounds for different types of belief.  The course is evaluated through two shorter papers (worth 15 and 25%), one long paper (wroth 45%) and participation (15%).
