1. Philosophical Conceptions.

Professor SANTAYANA.

The origin and value of some leading philosophical conceptions. Substance, platonic ideas, the good, final causes, the relation of body and mind, the transcendental self, and immortality, following in general the order in which these notions have appeared in the history of philosophy, but recasting them as much as seems necessary in order to make them consistent with one another and with a naturalistic view of the world. Any good history of philosophy will serve for reference, especially Windelband's; and among the greater philosophers those from which most will be borrowed are Plato, Aristotle, and Spinoza. 1 unit.
