The course begins with an introduction to metaphysics. Youll explore its connection to physics before looking at the discipline in further detail. Metaphysics is all about discovering what reality is. To give you further insight into this youll learn about the structure of reality. From here youll become familiar with the central questions asked in metaphysics, such as: What is existence? What is identity? What are space and time?
Studying the Metaphysics Foundation Diploma Course, youll explore cosmology, with examples from philosophers, astronomers and religions, along with a major part of metaphysics, the philosophy of mind, and the various theories that claim to explain how our minds work in relation to our bodies and the wider world. The course also covers free will, asking important questions on the topic: Does it exist? Or are we pre-determined to do what we do? Do we really have free choice? Discover what various theories have to say.
Youll delve into the relationship between metaphysics and science, as the course asks whether they are compatible or not and if they can work together. The course also considers whether metaphysics is really valid, and explores the ideas of thinkers who support metaphysics, and those who think it cant be used to understand reality.
Along with covering the questions that metaphysics asks, youll also be guided through the history of this form of philosophy. Youll explore the thoughts of Western philosophers, such as Socrates, Plato and Aristotle, along with modern philosophers, rationalism, and analytical philosophy. The Metaphysics Foundation Diploma Course also considers Eastern philosophy, as you look at classical Chinese, African, Indian and Buddhist metaphysical ideas.
The course rounds out with a short selection of other theories in metaphysics. These include feminist metaphysics, various types of solipsism and more theisms than you can count!
