South Park and Philosophy

Professor: S. Dalton

Term: Fall

Year: 2011

Course Code: FY-101-PL51

This class will be an introduction to philosophy using episodes of the TV show South Park as case studies in conjunction with philosophy readings. Through the readings and the South Park case studies, we will explore some of the most important questions that have been debated by philosophers ever since the time of Socrates. These questions are relevant to every discipline that you may choose as a major, and they are relevant to every career that awaits you in the future. So the study of philosophy that you do in this class will make you a more thoughtful and capable college student, and it will also prepare you for a more fulfilling life after you graduate.
