SOCIAL SCIENCES

HUM 1: Humanities and the Arts. This course is a basic introduction to the
student of humanities using an interdisciplinary approach. This course focuses upon
central concepts and the fundamental nature of philosophy, architecture, literature,
music, religion and art. Concepts from these disciplines are integrated with
contemporary Filipino culture.

HUM 2: Intro. To Philosophy and Logic. Logic is the formal study of what
counts as appropriate (i.e. “good”) reasoning. Most of us have some (modest) natural
abilities at recognizing good reasoning from bad reasoning, but we are also (most of us)
aware that sometimes these intuitions are quite fallible – especially depending on the
topic reasoned about! Logic began with the observation that there were patterns as to
what counted as good arguments and what counted as bad ones – patterns of
reasoning that reliably took us from some set of claims known to be true (“premises”) to
other claims that are true (“conclusions”). When premises are advanced to support a
conclusion we call it an “argument” and thus, since logic studies the relations of
inference between premises and conclusions, logic also helps us put together good
arguments. The branch of logic that will be mostly occupying us in this class is
Deductive Logic. This area of logic is concerned with one particular aspect of good
argumentation: validity. There are many other things important to a good argument and
to participation in argumentative activities other than validity, but awareness of the
patterns of deductive validity is by no means optional if one is to reason and argue well!

HUM 3: World Literature. A survey of world literature from the ancient


world through the sixteenth century. Students will study works of prose, poetry, drama,
and fiction in relation to their historical and cultural contexts. Texts will be selected from
a diverse group of authors and traditions
