Introduction to Philosophy: Faith, Reason, and the Christian Mind: Home

Introduction

"Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit."

-Aristotle

How To Use This Guide

        This course guide was designed to provide access to resources for students in Dr. Inman's Faith, Reason and the Christian Mind course. The first tab contains links to the required text books from the syllabus as well as some other recommended sources. The following tab offers a variety of helpful dictionaries and encyclopedias which serve as a solid starting point for understanding any new research topic. A brief explanation of what is contained in each dictionary or encyclopedia is provided. Simply hover over the information icons to view this. The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy and the Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy are also accessible via the links. Under "Resources for Paper Topics" you will find suggested books and resources according to the list of topics presented in the syllabus. Last but not least, you will find a selection of Journal titles that treat philosophical questions and matters under the last tab heading. 

        As a general preparation, we recommend to consult "The Thinker's Guide for Students" edition to which a link is provided on the bottom of the Home tab.
