Most philosophy courses start with Plato and follow his lineage; this will be a little different. We'll start earlier with the pre-socratic Heroclitus (nice name for a cat) and move through to the 20th century phenomenologists. This is a rebel's guide to philosophy, dangerous rather than ideal. It's also bias and firmly rooted in the continental tradition. There be no analytics here!
