Special Instructions:

There are few certainties in life, but one of them is that it ends. You, and everyone else you have ever met, will one day die. What does this mean for us- In this course, we take a philosophical approach to death. We ask questions like: Is immortality possible- Would immortality be desirable- How should I feel about my own death- How should I feel about other people dying- How should the knowledge that I will die affect how I live- This course satisfies the General Education (Gen Ed) Individual and Society requirement.
