PHI 16 Philosophy Through Popular Culture



This is an introduction to philosophical ideas and methods that explores the ways in which we can learn about–and do-Philosophy through popular culture. We will draw from a variety of sources-such as movies, TV, social media journalism, art, literature, music, and advertising. You will get a good overview of the discipline while seeing the ways philosophical themes, concepts, and ideas are expressed in popular culture. GS-VBI, VI. Note: Effective Fall 2014 students can get GS credit for only one, PHI 15 or PHI 16–not both.
